Blessings in a Backpack

Do you remember this post from a couple weeks ago? The one titled “Maximum Impact, Extremely Close.” We highlighted an excellent example of an individual from LifePoint finding a local opportunity to serve and prayerfully pursuing it. Karla Green’s passion to serve has now been highlighted in the Carroll County Times! Here’s an excerpt from the article:

The hunger statistics for Maryland really grabbed Green’s attention. According to Maryland Hunger Solutions, more than 27,000 children receive free or reduced meals in Carroll County.

In 2011, one in six Marylanders were unable to afford enough food and 21 percent of all households in the state struggled to put food on the table, despite Maryland being one of the wealthiest states in the nation.

“That is a huge number and it’s appalling,” Green said.

What opportunity is God putting in front of you? What idea has He planted in your mind? What burden has He placed on your heart? If you’re new to the idea of serving your community, you’ll have the perfect opportunity to take that step during Risk Love this October 8 – 14. But if you’re feeling the tug on your heart now, don’t wait! Step out in faith and see where God leads you!
