SERVANTS INC
October 13, 2009

Servants is a first-class "mission sending" organization with the experience and "know how" to help your volunteers have a great hands-on service experience regardless of their talent or skill level. Our trip to Waveland Mississippi could not have gone any better. 21 adults traveled to the Gulf Coast as Hurricane Ike was making its way through Texas. When we arrived at Camp Gulfside, the facility had been shut down for a month because of a mandatory evacuation. Servants team leader, Todd Jackson, worked closely with the site managers to organize our team to get the facility up and running so we could launch out from there to serve the surrounding community. We worked on numerous projects throughout the week completing a lot of much-needed work. At the same time, we ministered to the residents who needed, more than anything, to know that they were not forgotten...neither by God nor by their brothers and sisters in Christ. I am looking forward to my next trip with Servants. They are truly God's servants to the least, the lost and the last!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Hurricane Katrina recovery efforts in Waveland Mississippi. I always felt that my volunteers were prepared and equipped for the tasks to which we were assigned.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Find a way to give them more resources so they could help more people! I'm serious. There are a lot of other organizations out there that don't know what they are doing. Money would be invested well with Servants! You get your money's worth with them!

More feedback

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Their professionalism. We had a lot of fun but there was always a sense that our leaders knew what they were doing and were one step ahead of us, watching out for our safety and for what we needed to do next.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Devout Christian servants. They are always ready to help you or any one in need. They are the kind of people you would love to be your neighbor!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Make the front page of every newspaper in the US! They have learned to do so much with so little. I still can't believe how little we paid to do all the work that we did and have the experience we had. They use the 'widow's mite' very well!

Ways to make it better...

There had been fewer "love bugs" :-)
