What happens when you get a group of eager young people wanting to serve the Lord? Lots! Youth from across western Canada converged on Winnipeg for SERVE 2013. These young people, from the Canadian Baptists of Western Canada, included Union Gospel Mission in their ‘itinerary’, making us very thankful beneficiaries! They put together furniture, sodded and landscaped, sorted clothing, prepared meals, cleaned – just to name a few things. When all was said and done, it was calculated that 2000 ‘man-hours’ were given to the Mission in just one week. That’s more than what one typically works in a whole year! And – they seemed to have a lot of fun doing it.
UGM would like the thank everyone involved, for their willingness to roll up their sleeves plus the delight they had in serving. May you never lose your heart to do things for the Lord!
Psalm 100:2 - Serve the Lord with gladness; come before His presence with singing.
