MAD Seasons of Love for many years to come
I consider the Season of Love Project a legacy and hope it will be around for many years to come. Hello There!
I know it’s been a while since my last update. I’ve been working diligently on growing my service project carefully. I am growing my staff and getting support from some ministry advisors at my church. My church, Mariners Church in Irvine, has 9,000 members and many thriving ministries throughout the world, thus making it a great place to start. I’ve had several meetings with board members and other ministry leaders. I’m anxious to jump in and power through but I know I have to make one careful step at a time to ensure its success. I don’t want it to take off then have it implode due to poor planning and preparation. Aside from carefully assessing the application of the Season of Love Project, we’re also looking into expansion of it to include a food drive for families to volunteer to bring a meal for a family in crisis that may not have a support network around them due to perhaps a work transfer or deployment.
I have been able to serve some families just via word-of-mouth connections. It’s wonderful to be able to share my experience and ease their burden during difficult times. I can’t help but sing the praises of the wonderful, non-profit website lotsahelpinghands.com. It is my main tool. It’s free, user friendly and easy to customize for almost any situation.
I do feel the pressure of the July GT and want to have something fabulous to show for my work with this over the past year, but it’s been an exercise in patience. I want to do this right and I want it to last. I am so grateful for this opportunity and the catalyst for change that you are Donny. More updates coming soon.
I’m looking forward to the GT. What an incredible year it’s been.
More updates coming soon.
