Double-Duty Drew, Thank You!

By Diane Holloway
Communications/Volunteer Coordinator

Drew Sneed, a sophomore majoring in economics and math at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, volunteered with us twice a week during the summer. Usually we prefer not to bring in students, who may drop in once or twice but quickly depart for fun with friends. And who can blame them? But we need people who can commit to us on a regular basis.

An inspiring, very personal devotional

By Joviale Kambo
Social Work Intern

This is my story
A story of a girl who was kidnapped at the age of 4
This is a story of a girl who left her country and became a refugee at the age of 5
A story of a girl who, when growing up, only spoke French
But now speaks 4 other languages
This is a story of a girl who was thrown in high school as a freshman at the age of 18
But now is on her way to grad school
A story of a girl who is willing to dedicate the rest of her life to helping others
This is a story of a girl who is now a woman
A story of a woman who says NO to the famous sentence “give up”
This is a story of a woman who proudly says to you: follow your dreams
Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise
Last but not least,
This is a story of a woman who speaks of herself in third person.
This is a story about me!
I thank you all for listening. Have a great day!

We haven’t seen her in a long time, and when that happens, we always hope and pray that circumstances have changed for the better. We worry when people go away, and when our prayers are answered, we rejoice.

A Million Miles a Minute, by Sean Navarro

When you ask one of your best young volunteers to share some thoughts about spending time at Trinity Center, you don’t expect to receive a poetic masterpiece. But Sean Navarro, who anchors our chaotic kitchen on Fridays (breakfast, popcorn for movie day, etc.), is a special kind of guy. Celebrate and give thanks!
