Volunteering at the Sovereign Hope Apostolic Fellowship was a very eye opening experience overall. I was able to meet people that I normally wouldn’t cross paths with. For an example, Aerimee, a seven year old girl, seemed to be very shy. She insisted that I take her to go and color. We then went and got food and her dad joined us. She started opening up and began to tell me about her family and how excited she was for Christmas. The most significant moment I had with her was when the presents were given out and I had the privilege to see her whole face light up with joy all for a simple teddy bear. This really helped me realize the value a gift has on someone. Whether it is big or small, expensive or not the act of giving is powerful enough to brighten someone’s whole day.
