The ministry of Give Hope 2 Kids couldn't function without great volunteers. We've been blessed through the years with awesome volunteers, people who have come and helped us love kids and do excellent ministry work. This season, we have our largest volunteer force to date. We're doing more than ever before with education for our community and it's all thanks to these great people.
Kelvin & Monica Johnson, with their daughter Kelly, have served with us for over a year and a half now and have made a big difference in our ministry. They have tackled a wide range of projects while they've been here, from hosting groups, to working on construction projects, to throwing parties for our kids. They currently lead in the planning of the Friday Night Youth Group and the community classes we teach. The Johnsons plan to stick around GH2K for at least another year or two and we're certainly grateful for the role they've played in our lives and ministry.
Recently, another family moved down to work with us: Jacob & Cynthia Baker, and their girls, Maddie & Myra. All four of them have jumped in here with hearts to serve. They expect to be with us for a couple of years and we're looking forward to spending that time with them. Their family is involved in a wide variety of activities, from collecting eggs (the girls big job), to co-leading the preschool class, to administrative work, to leading the volunteer "church."
Leah is an awesome gal who is part-way through her year volunteering for GH2K. She is our resident librarian, who organizes the Library and much of the Library Program and classes. The spark she's added to the Library is huge! Leah also co-teaches the preschool class. We really appreciate her great attitude and willing heart.
In July, Kaitlen came and started her year of volunteering here. Kaitlen is assisting with teaching English, preschool classes, and is using her passion for soccer to spend time with kids here. She has a great heart for the kids and we really enjoy that about her.
And here's an updated photo of the our family. We're Jason & Sarah Furrow, the directors of GH2K, and our kids are Josiah & Eliana.
