I have personally witnessed the "who", "what" and "why" of Voice Of the Bride and this non profit is a true example of "Giving, Loving and Serving!!" The children and adults they feed, the lives they change and the love they provide has brought more years to life and life to years in the people they serve. Dedication, conviction, humility and love are but a few of the many ingredients Voice Of the Bride Ministries share with every person they touch. It has been an amazing year watching Wayne and Carol change peoples lives and help create a more healthy, sustainable world!! Thanks for leading the way for other non profits to see how its really done!! Dr. Ron Oberstein
I began volunteering in 9th grade for Voice of The Bride. At first it was all about doing my community service for high school credits. We would pick up food, sort it and box it for people less fortunate than ourselves. After understanding what compassion was really about and really liking what I did, I continued even after graduating. Wayne has taught me the importance of consistent dependability, teamwork, and positive attitude. Volunteering has helped me to grow a heart of compassion for others because I see how hard he works each day to selflessly serve. I have always wanted to be a missionary since I was 6 years old. By working with Voice of the Bride I am a missionary to many even though I haven't traveled anywhere yet. Volunteering has been a great training ground for me. Thank you for letting me be part of such a great mission!
I have been a volunteer with Voice of the Bride for 4 years. This organization has far exceeded in giving, loving, sharing hope and love. They serve many people throughout San Diego and Mexico with such dedication and hearts of compassion. The love of Christ and His love for people is eminent in their walk and ministry. Anyone that volunteers feels like they are an integral part of their mission. There are so many ways to be a part of Voice of The Bride; giving your volunteer time, partnering with donations and money as well as prayers are a valuable way that everybody can participate as a missionary. Co-laboring with hearts of compassion and integrity has helped me to grow. They are consistent in all they do even when they are tired or under the weather. Their heart of mercy is contagious!
There are few things more needed than food when you are hungry. Most of us reading these reviews are not hungry for food. We are hungry for healthy marriages, healthy relationships in community and much more. As friends with both Carol and Wayne, I called upon them if they could intercede for me when my burden felt too great. As they interceded and worshipped on my behalf, my heavy burden lifted - quickly. honestly, who are these two? So precious and loving, it is my joy to support them in reaching out and loving on others. A huge heart-felt thank you to you both!
VOB is a great non profit that is fully committed to serving the felt needs of the community around them.
The most loving non-profit I have ever encountered!
Volunteering for this ministry was a great experience! I loved being a part of what VOB does. When they told me they help the poor in Tijuana, Mexico, I was shocked. But when I realized that VOB was committed to serving people in Tijuana no matter what, I knew I had found a gem. Being a part of what VOB does has shown me so many things and helped me grow so much. I am at least a little bit more selfless and a little bit more wasteless. VOB basically takes what others don't want and turns it into gold. I'm talking about perfectly good food that would otherwise be thrown away for whatever silly reason someone came up with. It's tonto (that's spanish for silly/stupid). But seriously, we went to drug rehabs, AIDS clinics, churches, orphanages, shelter homes, and elderly homes. Everywhere we went they were so grateful for what we were doing. Many times they hugged us and thanked us. It was so heartwarming to see. My favorite part was going to the drug rehabs. I myself am a former drug addict so I really feel for these guys. My first time visiting one they showed me a locked room with a small opening in the door, almost like a cell, except larger. They told me the guys inside were detoxing and could not be let out. So I asked if I could go in and give them some pastries. They said sure. I got to sit down with these guys, eats some sweets, and share my story of how I got clean from drugs. They told me about their families and why they had decided to get clean. It was so encouraging for everyone and I'm thankful to VOB for doing this ministry full time to continue having encounters like this.
The photo is of me and a couple guys I met at a rehab center.
I've personally worked alongside these beautiful people and love their heart's for those in need. They walk in love and with integrity!
These guys are full of integrity and compassion. They are tireless, self-sacrificial and motivated by Mercy!
Consistently reaching out to those in need even when VOB were facing their own challenges. They have a strong commitment to bringing healing & freedom to those who need it most.
This organization helps so many. I have witnessed the love and compassion for many years. They know how to spread their resources to help so many in need. Grateful for all they do in San Diego and afar.
Wayne has been a blessing for me and my family. He has visited my brother who is in hospice care and been instrumental in bringing him into the kingdom. Thank you, thank you, Wayne!!!
