The Joy of Giving: A Volunteer's Perspective (Part Three)

I decided to volunteer because I kept reading about the overwhelming need for foster care organization support in Oklahoma City, and sensed a call from God. Ive been a volunteer with The Annas House Foundation for nine months.

They are available when we need them, whatever time of day or night that might be, with unceasing patience.

"Reunification" by The Blazs Family

We were hopeful about the perfect bridge resource family scenario, but we had been so involved in the foster care community that we had an idea of the frequency of that actually occurring. Never the less, our prayer as we went into this was that we might build a relationship with our foster child and their biological family with the hopes of sharing the Gospel with them. That was the better life we asked the Lord to provide for the little ones and their families who would come to our home.
