Throughout the whole high school I have served multiple times at different locations. I really enjoyed serving and helping others while I could. Service is such an important thing because we all need to serve one another and help our friends and neighbors out. Service is such an awesome and great thing and it is extremely necessary for us as Christians. God did the most service for us by sending his one and only son, only that we may not die, but will live and will go to heaven with him. This is the greatest service ever!
The first place I served at last year was when I went to serve at Annandale village. Annandale is a place for mentally challenged seniors and older people who would like a place to stay with other mentally challenged people in a neighborhood like area. While at Annandale we helped make crafts with the elders. Most of the men in Annandale didn’t really enjoy the crafts, but the women really enjoyed it. They were shouting and yelling for more supplies that they needed. I don’t really enjoy doing crafts at Annandale, I usually helped out in the gym with recreational activities. There was this one guy there named Mickey, this dude was like six foot 11 inches! I mean he was so tall he was like slouching. Drew Curie and I were like DANG, anyway we got to talking to him and we played some basketball with him. Later on we learned that he was actually a really good high school and college basketball star. I don’t exactly remember what happened, but he caught some type of disability and he lost all of his skills and now he is building them back up. I really enjoy my time at Annandale, in fact I went to Annandale about three or four times throughout the year and I always enjoyed it!
Another place that I went to serve at that I really enjoyed was Atlanta Missions. Atlanta Missions is a shelter for men in downtown who are homeless but usually because they are recovering addicts of drugs and alcohol. When I first heard...
