Faith in Action.....
Take a moment to stop and think about those people in your life who truly understand what it means to serve, it just seems to be so natural, they see things that others don't see, they find joy in helping others and most of what they do will likely go unnoticed. Yet, for some reason they are the happiest people you know.

The following ideas came out of a brainstorming session asking the question "what does it mean to put your faith in action" with a group of students who were part of a recent mission team.

Give an hour of your time to someone who needs you. Give a note of encouragement to someone who is down. Give a hug of affirmation to someone in your family. Visit someone who is housebound. Give a meal you prepared to someone who is sick. Give a word of compassion to someone who just lost someone they love. Show kindness to someone who is slow and easily overlooked.
Jesus taught: “…to the extent that you did to one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of them, you did it to Me” Matthew 25:40

What a privilege to serve alongside such an insightful and empathetic group of teenagers who are inspired to make a difference in the lives of others. Mission and Service at Pacific Hills continues to change culture and transform lives. Who else is feeling thankful?
