    Thank-you, Rebecca, for sharing this part of your life with us. I am sure it was as much of a blessing to you as it was to the people you helped.

    Mission work

    Thank you Rebecca for sharing your mission trip with us. Reading your journal brought back a lot of memories from my own mission trip. Yes you miss the people you met but they are still a part of us. Bless you for sharing your time with those less fortunate.

    THANK U for sharing!

    I have known a lot of people who have helped with MDS, and MCC.
    We never have to look far, to see people who are in need. There is nothing as rewarding to me, than to be able to help others.
    I wish that I had helped MDS when I was younger, as I am too old now. I can volunteer at my local hospital gift shop, though, and I enjoy that & I am appreciated there for the time spent each week!!
    Blessings to all those who take time to volunteer…U are a blessing to many!

    Rebecca – I have lived all my life in Louisiana; many thanks to you and your group for coming to help. The best thing – by far – about Katrina was the wonderfully generous response from so many people. We met people from all over the world who came to help. I’m sure the scenery and culture were somewhat exotic for you- we’re a little different around here. And I’m so glad you got a taste of our DELICIOUS oranges! Thank you so much!

    Awesome post!

    Oh, Rebecca, I love reading your adventures. You all are so good to go and help with the disasters. I live in Oklahoma, and we have tornadoes at times that are disastrous, and it is really amazing how people band together to help each other. You have a really nice way with words.

    MDS in Texas

    Eric, thanks so much for highlighting the work of MDS. My husband (who is not Amish) has worked on crews here in Texas. They’re an awesome organization and many people do not realize that the Amish volunteer in this way. My new release, Joshua’s Mission, details this very thing (though in a fictional setting). Thanks again.

    There is also a new program that has been started for our service- age young men, called OASP ( Ohio Old-order Amish Service Program) . They will get together groups of 20 or more young men with several couples (as house parents) and sometimes single ladies and widows (as cooks). They will usually set up and stay at one location for a month. Also individual groups will go on clean-ups on their own.
    There is also a great need around us, consider volunteering at your local nursing home , many of the residents would be thrilled to just have someone stop in and visit, read, or sing with them. Or at a local hospital, or thrift stores, or food pantry or homeless shelter.
    Sometime perhaps I’ll share with you my experiences at Galilean Children’s Home. If anyone is interested they are on Facebook.
