My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for My Body and Soul, League City, TX, USA
I have been living in the area about 2 1/2 years. We found our church home before we closed on our house. If you have ever moved, you know it takes time to become embedded in the community. As time went on my prayers included finding the area in which I am called to serve. I had heard many stirring positive testimonies from volunteers who serve My, Body and Soul. I knew this was an area ministry welcoming additional volunteers and support. I was not certain it would be my comfort zone and avoided seeking to serve in this ministry. After expending much effort in a handful of other ministries in the area, I began to feel a stronger undeniable pull toward My, Body and Soul. The day I surrendered and walked right over to the ministry building and expressed my desire to plug in, is the day I experienced why I was being called there. I experienced the love of Christ living and active in all those serving. This ministry provides so much more than the much needed basic material personal items needed for daily living. I witnessed volunteers praying over clients; greeting them by name with a loving smile and embrace as they stepped through the door; the director knew every single client and their story; staff members recognizing the children of clients and searching for a donated toy to add to their grocery bag. This ministry treats those clients with genuine love and respect. As for me, I believe I needed to be called out of my comfort zone. I found what I lack, God provides. Perhaps my call to serve this ministry is more about changing me.
