Union Gospel Mission of Tarrant County
December 8, 2011
My history with UGM is short, but it has been an amazing twelve months. It is real easy to think that all is well in the world, or at lease here at home where everyone is supposed to be warm and comfortable, and eating three meals a day. UGM is my reality check and when I don't get to be with them every weekend, I feel useless. In my short experience, it is evident that the staff is invested in this ministry. It is a privilege working with other volunteers in helping the dedicated staff relieved the burden of the residence as well as bless the guests. Working side-by-side with staff and volunteers has brought meaning to my life and I can only pray that the residence and guests feel the same. Initially, working with the homeless was my main focus, but now encourage the staff and trying to fill in the gap for them is uppermost in my mind, especially if I am not there. I thank God for this ministry and I give glory to God for allowing me to help in any way I can in this ministry.
