Volunteer Group Spotlight - Blakely Eller from Highland Church of Christ

"This is my second time coming to Fortress. My buddy this year was Reyonna; she is very sweet and funny. Yesterday, I saw this little boy that can dance like Michael Jackson.

We went to the museum yesterday and it was so cool to see the looks on the kids' faces when they saw something they really liked. My favorite moment was painting the sun with my buddy. I think God brought me to Fortress this week to learn about poverty and open my eyes to see that other people have it harder than me.

I'm looking forward to going to the zoo tomorrow with my buddy.

We haven't done Urban Experience this week yet but last year I really enjoyed getting to go around and pray. I can't wait for Urban Experience and getting to know my buddy more."
