If someone was to ask me two years ago what I wanted to be I would have greeted them with silence. Before I was a very anti-social person and I didn’t really like speaking much in front of a public, audience, or even my small group of friends. I was the type of girl who preferred staying home in the weekends and watch Netflix instead of going out. But everything changed when I went on a missionary trip with my church to Mexicali. The church I attend has a group of volunteers who go every 2-3 months on the weekends to Mexicali. In these trips we distribute clothes, food, essentials, toys, and candies for all the kids and people in Mexico that live in poverty. Many people who live there live in harsh conditions and are struggling to provide a home for their families. My first trip was a life changing experience because it changed the person who I was. I became an active and outgoing person. I became to appreciate and value the possessions I have at home. Every time I see the kids at Mexicali content when they receive a pair of shoes or a piece sandwich it makes me pleased of myself because I’m able to help them with what I can. Throughout these series of trips I discover my passion and how I have a soft spot for kids. Since Mexicali and where I live have a very large driving distance and I can’t go every day I also volunteer to help kids and adults around my community also. I have help
“There is no pit so deep that God’s love is not deeper still.” Corrie ten Boom has spoken these words more times then she can count on her fingers; they encouraged her through heartbreak and pain, World War II and the risk of hiding Jews, concentration camps, and even the death of her sister. Corrie was brave when others were weak; she fought when others hid. She always knew, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that she was supposed to help others when they could not help themselves. Through troubles and tribulations, foreign stranger lives saved and loved family lives lost, Corrie ten Boom stood strong and persevered to live a bold life, and have an outstanding ministry. Corrie experienced one of the darkest times in the history of the world, but she strove to be a light that shone through.
Within the first year of opening they had helped fifty-two girls see their greatness and help them strive for a better future.Mr. Don J. Brewster was the pastor for a catholic church in Sacramento,California. He went on his first trip to Cambodia in 2005, which was to see the missions his church has been supporting for years. Upon arrival to Svay Pak the only issue only seemed to be poverty, he played with the children, visited the pastors from the missions, and went back on his way home. The next day, after he arrived home, he turned on the news, and the headline story on NBC was “Children For ...

The lighted cross on the side of the red brick building proclaims “Jesus Saves”, the name commonly used to refer to the Denver Rescue Mission; the oldest, full-service Christian charity in the Rocky Mountain region. Many people know it by no other name. They may not know its real name, but they know its function in the community; a shelter and gathering place for the poor and homeless of Denver’s streets. At the Mission people will find a place to shower, a hot meal after each Gospel service, Bible classes, dental and medical clinics, clothing and counselors. The Rescue Mission is a starting point on the transition to a new life for those who take advantage of the many programs now offered in this non-denominational, Christ-centered ministry. (Dorsett, 1983).
I have had the opportunity to participate in the community health service project at Temple University Hospital from past several weeks. I have found through this experience that service which is an act of helping or assisting others have changed my perception from helping others to being able to use my skills and knowledge I have in different ways to have better health outcomes. According to Mahatma Gandhi, in order to be the best person you can be, you should focus on finding ways to serve others. In serving others, you find out more about yourself and help others in the process. Therefore, I knew it would be a different experience where you are able to apply your knowledge in real world. This is what I look forward to do in near future.
Having a relationship with people is more important to me than just doing the work. Doing something for someone or helping with something and also doing missionary work I will ask people to join to accomplish the goal together and to have the best possible outcomes as a group instead of an individual.

“I’m viewed as a brother to them. I’m there to help them in their time of need and to give them a role model they can follow,” he said. Each day that he worked at the organization, more and more kids would stop by to get help. Some of the kids were about to give up on life and were even talking about suicide. Thankfully, the church had over 20 different mentors, not including the other pastors that work there.
My mission is to love and serve in a place where everybody is willing to love. Summer youth camps to Snowbird Outfitters is a perfect example of my service. In early 2011 I got to experience a week in the mountains
