Review for My Body and Soul, League City, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The pantry positively affects the lives of families in our community that need help every week. A friendly smile, a hug, toiletries needed by the family and most of all prayers are shared with many. Kids love to come and play or translate for their parents. The families also appreciate the school supplies and Christmas gifts provided each year. Many of the kids do not receive other gifts and would go to school without supplies.
The pantry also provides a wonderful opportunity for volunteers to give of themselves and to receive much in return. Some volunteers work every day we are open, others work on Saturdays, some work during the distributions of school supplies or Christmas gifts, and some are active members of our prayer team. The rewards for volunteering are truly amazing.

What a joy it has been to work with MBS for another year. I have grown so much working with the volunteers and the clients. It is amazing to see and feel the differences that are made in lives. The generosity expressed by so many is heartwarming. One can never doubt that our time is well spent.

When MBS first began 5 years ago, I was aware of the ministry and provided some support and participated as a sponsor in the Christmas program and the backpack/school supply project. I began volunteering 1 1/2 years ago after I "retired". I thought it would be good to get involved one morning a week and I figured I would do ok getting toiletries ready for clients! Well, that is not what happened. I did not work in the back for weeks! I started the first day training at a desk with Patt. I had never prayed out loud with people I did not know! Patt and God soon showed me that I could do just that. It has been such a blessing to work with the wonderful volunteers. The clients we have are amazing. They love The Lord and have great faith. They come to us for basic necessities of life with smiles on their faces! They thank us for volunteering! They pray for our ministry! I have grown so much working with them. Just a few months ago I began leading MBS at BHUMC and have the most supportive and dedicated leadership team to work with. The work is a lot more than the one morning a week that I planned, but it is rewarding and in God's plan. I am blessed to be a part of God's plan for MBS and to have had the opportunity to learn from and to work with Gina. I believe that God will provide for this ministry in His time and in His way.
