MBI has many unsung heroes.
Urbandictionary.com defines an unsung hero as one who does a great job yet receives little or no recognition, refraining from claiming much in return for their efforts.
While remodeling MBI’s downstairs office I was reminded how volunteers helping fulfill someone’s vision become unsung heroes to that person or ministry.
We needed help with drywall, painting, flooring, and trim. A small team from Mississippi came to help with the drywall and painting, and our corporate board chairman brought his small group to help with the flooring and trim. It was powerful to receive volunteers coming to serve!
MBI gets daily calls and emails requesting volunteers. We connect 500-plus volunteers each year, but the need is greater than the number of our volunteers.
A Mission Builder volunteer is anyone between the ages of 18 and 80 with a heart to lend their time, talents, and energy to serve a YWAM location somewhere in the world, joining hearts and hands to glorify Jesus and extend the Kingdom.
Ordinary people can become unsung heroes at global YWAM locations. Would you consider being an answer to their calls for help?
