My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for GOOD SAMARITAN MINISTRIES, Beaverton, OR, USA
I was in a terrible mess! My second marriage was not going well. My husband had left the home. One afternoon we sat on the couch discussing our failed marriage. As I quietly prayed, the Lord reminded me of a woman I had met several weeks before. Her name was Bettie Mitchell. When my husband admitted he didn't know what to do, I suggested we see Bettie for counseling. He was in agreement. Bettie began counseling us. The process was tough but the end result was life-giving. My husband volunteered to help people locally and internationally. He has since passed on to heaven.
My Good Samaritan Ministries volunteer work began as a member of the Good Samaritan Ministries Kenya team. This work inspired me to travel to Kenya. Up to now, I have traveled 9 times to Africa, 3 times to the Middle East and once to Asia ... all to learn about and support the work of GSM internationally.
As a retired school teacher, passionate about the plight of children around the world, I now serve as Co-Leader of International Education. The Good Samaritan Ministries International Education team meets weekly at the International office in Beaverton, Oregon. gsminternationaleducation.org
Good Samaritan Ministries offers many opportunities for service locally and internationally. Individual counseling is availble on a donation basis. Inspired teaching challenges and moves us forward to freedom. We move out of victim mentality. We learn to use our gifts and talents, to go the extra mile, and to be a blessing to others. We meet inspiring men and women who live by great faith.
