Jim recalled a friend volunteering at Keystone Mission in years past and how it helped them in their life. Though he admits his friend’s testimony didn’t change his heart, there was something else pulling him toward Keystone.
When he received Wednesdays off from work, he saw it as an opportunity to use that day for ministry. After mornings of being encouraged through a men’s fellowship class, Jim spends his afternoons with the men at the Transformation Center. Jim is now a weekly volunteer at our Wilkes-Barre Transformation Center, where he builds relationships with residents by driving them to needed appointments.
“[Volunteering] is how I fit ministry into the work week… it’s a blessing.”
Jim used to drive buses & trucks professionally and now he’s found a way to incorporate what he enjoys into a ministry opportunity.
Since transportation is one of the greatest obstacles the homeless population faces, Keystone Mission is thankful for volunteers like Jim who help us provide access to the proper medical and mental health appointments as needed.
“Life should be lived as soon as you’re able until you’re no longer able!”
His encouragement to others seeking to volunteer is “everyone should go as God leads them as He gives them the opportunity to find what they should be doing.”
