On LOVE MIAMI DAY (4/30/2016) Christ Fellowship went to serve Riverside House as well as the surrounding community. We were encountered with a grateful staff and our volunteers were eager to get started to serve. Though, our initial purpose was to serve the clients, the Lord had other plans. We arrived and there were few clients and I thought to myself we came to serve them! But as I looked around I saw volunteers painting areas in the facility, packing backpacks for kids whose parents live in the facility, evangelizing around Riverside House picking up garbage and sharing the Gospel with the City workers and our Caring For Miami Dental Mobile Unit bus helping these clients with their smile. There, I saw that serving Riverside House was serving the clients, that is what it was about!. Afterwards, as we were picking up I felt what was my purpose. I have not shared with anyone my faith, and there in front of me stood an older lady. She was visiting her son. As I spoke to her I felt she wanted "something" and I asked her those simple and powerful words "Puedo orar por usted?" (Can I pray for you?) and it was with a sigh of relief that she said "si" (yes). Right then and there a group of us prayed for her and there it was - the purpose! It was a blessing to serve this community with my brothers and sisters in Christ at Riverside House and the community. The Glory is to God! "Whoever serves me must follow me; and where I am, my servant also will be. My Father will honor the one who serves me." John 12:26
