Give Kids the World
A Ministry of Love, from the Heart of Our Family
The sun is still hiding below the night-time horizon, but Winter Haven Adventist Church family members begin to make their way toward Kissimmee. That is the home of the world of children and family members of the Make A Wish Foundation benefactors. The Give Kids the World Village houses the families coming to fulfill lifetime wishes, a visit to the marvelous attractions of Central Florida.
This very special opportunity to share from the heart is a ministry where the greatest joy comes to the ones giving of themselves in service to make the families comfortable. This standing appointment, the first Sunday of each month, needs 25 volunteers to staff the breakfast serving and clean-up lines. Monthly participants change, with many of the church's members and guests participating regularly. Pathfinders work to earn points of accomodation, but most enjoy the time sharing smiles and laughter.
