Volunteers' corner

"Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God's grace in it's various forms." -1 Peter 4:10

Welcome to our "volunteers' corner". This will give you an opportunity to get to know our dear friends and family who help us so much daily/weekly/monthly. Here we go.
"I am Barbara Manley, grandma ma of the beautiful Manley Quints. I feel so blessed to be a part of this wonderful experience of Love and Life seeing this tiny , tiny infants become these beautiful children , so different each and every one with gifts and personalities that are so unique. I can see how God creates each one of us into the image and likeness of his Spirit . These children have the most amazing little spirits. They are so much fun and touch my heart each and every time I am with them. I play and dance like I never do at other times. They make me feel young and love in my heart. I feel they are Blessed with the most wonderful parents to see that they are loved and protected at all times. Dave and Manna have built the most loving community around the children to know what living on earth is really about.Serving God and Serving the World. I am so happy to be a part of this grand plan of Loving Service.
Namaste, Love and BlessingsBarbara"
At the beginning of 2007 we asked the Lord how He would like us to service Him in the coming year. We had no idea how our lives would be changed, enriched, fulfilled, and loved over the next year. Our prayer to make a difference in kids’ lives came to light in five precious babies. There have been so many special moments but we will highlight a few. Watching Hanna take her first steps being so careful and graceful was so precious. Her concern and love for Mate as she patted him on the head was beyond words. Tomi doing his army crawl, using his elbows, was fun to watch. His contagious smile that greets you in the morning is so sweet. Annabelle is a determined little girl. Her little laugh and desire to be squeezed is a special joy. Her discovery and exploring what snow was about was fun to watch. Lili is a quiet Queen whose darling laugh, disposition and smile brighten up the room. Her love of books is special because we would read books to her so she would finish her bottle. Mate is nothing short of a continued answer to prayer. We will never forget the day he started to crawl, it brought tears to our eyes. He has the most precious smile and will steal anyone’s heart.
