From the desk of Chris Trussell
I recently had the most wonderful opportunity to see God working through others. A group of young men and women with Campus Ministries came from all over Idaho and Montana to spend a day volunteering their leadership and labor at A Ray of Hope. Lead and labor they did! There is ALWAYS something that needs doing around the property. Working around the shelter and thrift store, they managed to get some things done in a day that may have taken us a week.
Close to lunch time I asked Tyler, the group’s leader, what we could do for lunch? He advised me they had brought their own. They had also brought their own tools. As they were loading into cars at the end of the day (I believe wanting no fanfare) I asked if they could indulge me a group picture. As I took the photo, my heart moved to the point of a few tears realizing that the whole point of these trips were simply to be a blessing.
I hollered out “you forgot your things”, noticing they had left all their tools behind as they began pulling away from the shelter. “Those are for you all”, someone said as they drove off……..
