Ways in which i could 'exercise my my serving muscles' are (1) establishing a tutoring program for elementary children having difficulty reading & writing ; (2) working within a program that assists others with their needs ---food, clothing---basic needs that i myself take for granted; and (3) assisting in operating an after school sports program that would provide kids with an positive outlet to direct their energies. i'm a retired teacher with energy in my tank that's there to fulfill purposes in life. If at all possible, i would desire that these ministries be Christ-centered to utilize what time i'm provided with to extend his kingdom to others within my community. These are heartfelt issues that i have a passion to see to fruition. While i see serving others as one of the many obligations of the Christian, in addition, i view service to others as truly the way of completing my life in Christ. In Jesus name, i pray, amen.

Yes, we are called to serve others. God has a mission for each of us and at the core of each of us is our talent, passion and strength He has aligned us with. God is great a putting us together with different abilities to serve in different capacities. We just need to discover and allow that to show through... Amen, M.O.I. Thank you, Anthony
