What service did you perform?
For the last couple of years I have volunteered at Gospel Road. It is a week long mission trip to some location within the Diocese. We help the elderly and injured with work around their houses like painting, yard work, and house work.
How did you get involved?
I first heard about this from my youth minister. It was advertised as fun and fulfilling so I tried it and I loved it.
Why is this extraordinary?
It’s extraordinary because 100 plus teens are giving up a week of their summer to labor and sleep in gyms and none of them complain!
How an others get involved?
Others can get involved by talking to their youth minister of their church or school because each one will have information on it. I encourage those who are thinking of getting closer to God to do it!
What is most rewarding about it?
The most rewarding thing is seeing the faces of the people we help after they see the jobs that we have done.
