Local ministries are very important to the growth and the stability of communities. After a storm hits a community or tragedy strikes, it is the local churches, ministries and organizations that help families rebuild their lives. Local ministries provide light and a beacon of hope to local citizens. Volunteers are always needed to carry the torch. If you’re looking for ways to make a local impact, get involved with ministries like Angel Food, American Red Cross, Habitat for Humanity, prison ministries, hospital ministries, nursing home ministries and college ministries. Connect with your place of worship or perform an on-line search for ministries in your community and get involved.
Going on a mission trip can be the ultimate step in impacting nations. Taking a mission trip to places like Uganda, Brazil, New Guinea, Israel, China and beyond can be a life changing event for you and the lives of the people that you touch. When the natives see missionaries, it is a testament to them that Jesus cares enough about them to send people from miles away to love, care for and spend time with them.
