A Note from Jani – E-News May 2018

Dear Friends,

From the calls and e-mails we get, I know many of you have considered serving with Natalie’s Sisters. I also know it’s sometimes scary to step into a new opportunity if you don’t know what it entails.

Natalie’s Sisters has New Team Member Training every few months, where those interested gather to hear current team leaders explain the different aspects of the ministry and answer questions. There are behind-the-scenes projects and hands-on opportunities; food preparation and food delivery; jail visits, hospital visits and mentoring, to name a few. If you’re interested, please send an email to nataliessistersoffice@gmail.com and we’ll send you the scoop on our next meeting – Sunday, May 20.

Keep in mind, there are no “volunteers” at Natalie’s Sisters. Each person who serves is critical to the success of this ministry; necessary to meet the needs of our Sisters. Serving with Natalie’s Sisters is more than just putting in a couple of hours a week – it’s a heart commitment. That’s why everyone who serves on our team is a Team Member – not a volunteer.

We hope some of you will be interested in our next training. In the meantime, check out what some of our current volunteers say about their experience with Natalie’s Sisters:

 

“Volunteering at Natalie’s Sisters has been eye-opening. I truly had no idea there was such a need to serve those less fortunate and sexually exploited. Here, I’m able to help and serve in a way I never have before. God has obviously been preparing me for Natalie’s Sisters my whole life. I hope you will try it – and I believe it will change your life, too, in ways you never knew possible.”  – N

“Serving with Natalie’s Sisters is heart-warming!  It’s such a blessing to know our Sisters can come to the Drop-in Center and rest, knowing they are in a safe place for a few hours.”- D

“Serving here as changed my life. I love the women we get to work with! God tells us to love God and love people, and this ministry has changed my heart towards all people!  Anybody considering volunteering – do it! You will be blessed in so many ways.” – L

“You will share in the reward. It really is true that the rewards to those who serve are greater than the service the client receives. And we serve to help change lives – even if just the life of one person!” – J

“Walking into an adult entertainment club with a home-cooked meal can completely change the course of one of our Sisters’ days.  She may be dealing with abuse, financial stress, addiction, or depression. When that happens — a hug and a warm meal can mean everything!” – M 

 

Blessings,

Jani Lewis, Executive Director
