Ms. Vicky volunteered at Summer Camp and she had a seemingly perfect group. After the first day, a difficult student was moved into her group in the hopes that being with older kids would encourage him to behave. There were several times in the day that they had to have one on one conversations about reactions and behaviors. As the week ended, those talks touched Ms. Vicky's heart so much. The Lord was healing her own heart as she spoke with this young man, a reminder her of her own son. A picture of unconditional love and patience being poured out on him as well as her own heart.
If you like to organize, you might be just the person to help with mailings, scheduling the facility or a variety of other administrative assistance opportunities that are crucial to making everything run smoothly.
