Be a Boaz!
There are so many efforts to make a difference that do not make us different. It is not the people who paint a house in a strange place but rather the people who make friends and are transformed who make the deeper difference over the long haul. Pilgrims return home as new people. Changed by their journeys, they change the world where they live.
Volunteers are making a difference in a number of ways. Are you drawn to the mission and eager to get to work? Look at the possibilities for immediate connection and consider yourself called!
