Review for Good Samaritan Ministries, Beaverton, OR, USA
Back in 2008 I was invited by one of the GSM volunteers to attend a banquet that introduced me to the mission that Good Samaritan Ministries had to set up schools in Africa and to provide local counseling to those in need here in the Portland area as well through other US based offices.
A year later I was curious in how I might be able to provide some volunteer support at the office and how my talents might be of use.
On day one after filling out the information on my background and skills I was asked to help out with the GSM website and other digital and technical needs of the office.
In addition I eventually recorded the Wednesday night Bible studies and published them to You Tube for those that wanted to be part of the studies remotely anywhere in the world.
While I'm very impressed in the work GSM does Internationally I really appreciate all of the work and good efforts made to help others locally. Many people need help and counseling but cannot afford the commercial services that they need. That's where GSM is vitally important. Without their services that provide counseling for the ability to gift when possible to keep the infrastructure in place, the office, the paid staff and the costs of outreach many might continue to cope with their problems and emotional challenges.
