Novo Ministries helps me connect and serve young kids in the inner-city of Oklahoma City. Through their planning, prayer, training, and encouragement, I can serve alongside other volunteers and staff to love on some kids that do not get a lot of attention at home sometimes. I get to teach them about the love, justice, and hope we can all have in Jesus Christ through what He did in giving up His life to take the punishment for our sins and rising again, giving us hope for our eternal communion with Him after this life. The power and work of Jesus Christ is the foundation and empowerment for the mission that they are on to reach kids with the gospel in order to impact the community in an immensely powerful way. The little children that I have been working with, through Novo, for over a year have shown such sweet reception to our presence and continued interest in their lives that it has transformed and softened my heart towards them and other children who have needs, who just want and need attention, and who desperately crave to understand what life is about even in the midst of strife, turmoil, and craziness. Novo is so easy to work with also! They make it so easy to get plugged in to serving that it seems like you do not have to do much work yourself. Their impact on children, families, and the communities is worth recognizing and praising and I hope their work will continue to grow!
