Volunteer Group Spotlight - Haven Thomas of Henryetta Church of Christ

June 16, 2014

"Today was our first day, but we were here last year. I was very excited to see and spend time with the kids. Something about being around them and seeing them smile just because we play with them warms my heart. One little boy in particular actually remembered me from last year, and he was basically attached to my hip. It just fills me with joy to know just being here is making a difference in their lives.

Then after they left we went on the prayer drive. I went last year but it never shocks me any less to see how really bad it is. Especially when we went on Lancaster and saw all the homeless people. I know it sounds pretty stupid but I just wish I could give all those people a cheeseburger. It isn't anything big but even the little things matter. I know my journey this week is just starting, but I already know it's going to be a great one. I am so thankful for Fortress and everything it stands for."
