Maddie came with her youth group to volunteer earlier this year. Then, she brought her mom, dad and younger sister back with her to spend a day helping in the food pantry! Her mom and dad took a day off work to come see what on earth had such an effect on their daughter. She came back from the mission trip changed. This is one reason why Love Link Ministries, Inc. exists; to allow teens, children and adults to be changed by God as they serve Him by serving others. We don't usually get to know what happens in the lives of our volunteers, but today, one teen and two grateful parents came back and said 'thank you'; and we said, "Thank you!"; and we all said, "Thank You, Lord!"
Youth mission trips do make a difference. Adult mission trips do, too! Volunteering, helping, serving; whatever you want to call it is essential to growth as Christian. Jesus said 'serve as I have served you'.
