Review for The Rock at NoonDay, Albuquerque, NM, USA
Initially volunteering at the Rock at NoonDay (RAN) took a step of faith. I did not know what to expect, because up until then, the only interaction with the homeless , was in a parking lot being asked for spare change. That was always a scary. What if i said no, what if they acted unpredictably, then what?
My first day volunteering to serve lunch at the RAN changed me forever. I went from apprehensive interactions to seeing the homeless as brothers and sisters in Christ. Not only did the staff warmly welcomed me, but I found it a safe place to place food in their hands, look them in the eye and say "God Bless you brother, I hope you enjoy the meal. Now when I meet a homeless person I can share God's love and invite them to share a meal with the other volunteers and staff members. My life was changed, so can yours.
