There’s only one led2serve! - It Stole My Heart and Will Steal Yours Too!
Picture this… one week, all logistics taken care of (food, travel, stay), alluring scenery, the experience of another culture, AMAZING journey leaders, fellowship, adventure of your choosing, and most importantly; getting the chance to enhance the life(s) of the people you serve in led2serves partner locations... Do you feel it? Can you picture it?
I promise you one thing, if you are looking for the opportunity to add to the bigger picture of this thing we call life. If you are wanting to experience something outside of everyday routines and just get away for a while. If you’re just looking to travel and experience parts of the world/US while creating friendships and memories. Led2serve is your ticket to it all!
I have been fortunate enough to go on several journeys with led2serve, and it will not be my last! You purchase your journey and you’re done. The organization of this company is phenomenal, from arrival to departure this team of journey leaders and coordinators take care of you in so many fashions. No worry, no stress, the team equips you with everything you could possibly need so that you can have the greatest experience. It is a laid back crew that is driven by the saying “work hard, play hard”, and to be honest, the work is just as fun as the play.
In fact, it is the work that is going to make your trip the most memorable and life changing. You see, the people and places that you go to, they love you without even knowing you. Before you step foot in their presence you are sincerely loved by them. Led2serve connects you with those in need of a little help. Meaning two things, connection to the physical act of serving, and connection to the heart of you and those that you’re helping. I can tell you my first journey is as vivid in my mind as the day I experienced it, and that, that is because it stole my heart. You may think that planting a tree, painting a school, or playing sports with kids are just good deeds to add to your list, but the people in these partner locations think the small or big acts that you are providing are absolute blessings. The gratitude and genuine appreciation from these people is felt, not just heard. That feeling alone will change your life; add in the culture, the adventure and the fellowship while creating lasting memories and a journey with led2serve with steal your heart just like it stole mine.
All of this just takes one thing… a heart to serve.
I started working with the Led2Serve Group about 4 years ago and have always been very pleased with there work. We are a Military School (St. John's in Salina, KS) that have young men from the 6th grade thru the 12th grade, so we kind of a unique group to work with, but Venessa and Yolanda and there team do a wonderful job of putting together two (2) mission trip per year for me. One on our Thanksgiving Break and the other on our Spring Break They put trip together for us that is a combination of community service and some fun time, which is quite the task, when you are trying to plan for up to 15 boys at Thanksgiving and up to 30 at Spring Break, and these number can change right up to the minute we leave our school. But I Never have to worry about anything, as I know that they have planned out everything for us, from where we will stay to when we eat on where, to what time we need to get up every morning. Which makes my life so easy. For me one of the best parts of this organization (beside the people that run it) is that they stay very flexible and are ready to handle any kind of problem that might come up. I have the greatest respect for the Led2Serve Team and would (and do) recommend them to any group. As I will continue to use them for all my mission trips.
