Reflections from Karen Baesman,
Family Promise Coordinator
For those of you who don't know, PUMC one of those involved in getting Family Promise started and our continued support for this ministry is displayed through all who give your time, make donations, and hold the ministry in your prayers.
I just left the house a couple of hours ago, thankful I have a car to drive and a house and family to come home to. But I am also thankful that I had the opportunity to read with some young children, to play with toddlers and to provide an ear for some young mothers. Family Promise continues to bless my life. It reminds me of the many ways I have been blessed. It connects me with people who may seem different than me in many ways, but who really are like me in the sense that they are trying to care for their families. And perhaps most importantly, it teaches me patience and faith as I wait to see if we will find enough volunteers!! I am sure that you will be blessed by your experience with Family Promise as well!
