Sojourner Truth Ministries has many who volunteer and dedicate their time to the ministry. They are the back bone of this ministry and STM is so very grateful for each of them. Many thanks!!
When I was a little girl, attending Catholic School, the nuns would always tell us about the importance of giving to the missions on the other side of the world. We would collect our pennies and nickels and donate to a place and to people that we had only “met” through poster pictures and pamphlets.
That, however, is not the case with STM. It is not a building that is on the other side of the world. The people that STM serves are not unfamiliar people that we only know through still pictures on a poster or pamphlet. Instead, this is a living and breathing organization that depends almost entirely on its volunteers and community donations.
I am committing to help out in a way that working together will ultimately help Sojourner Truth Ministries to grow and flourish as we move into 2021 and beyond!
I am part of Sojourner Truth Ministries, but more importantly I am a Child of God. I love to serve and witness to others with God’s love, mercy and unending grace. Being involved in this ministry is a huge blessing to me and my family. The constant involvement has provided me and my family with the opportunity to meet our Sojourner’s population on a personal level. Constant contact with our population provides them a sense of comfort, trust, and makes them feel loved. STM is their home, their family, their safe place. I invite you to pray and ask the Lord if this is a ministry He is calling you to be part of. In this place you’ll see God at work. There is a lot more to be done in this city of Williamsport. Blessings to you!
