Being His Hands and Feet

(An Article by Dee Dee Ball)

I have had the blessing of serving in Honduras on 3 separate occasions. The goal was to go on each of these 10-day missions trips and let God use me to be His hands and His feet. Cleaning an Olympic Village after Hurricane Mitch was not what I had in mind, but it was in God’s plan, so I did it. Teaching English and playing with kids who faced the storm’s devastation everyday was also on God’s mind. Sitting in my comfortable home, surrounded by family, I can easily just go about my day. Thank God, He doesn't forget the many needs of His people and sent me to be His hands and His feet.

His Hands and His Feet can take on a myriad of possibilities. For someone who is lonely, it’s a visit. For someone who can’t get around as easily as they once did, it can be clean windows on their house. For an organization that uses their time and resources pouring into others, it can mean an updated space for ministry. For a church that desires a deeper relationship with each other and those we serve, it can mean a shared breakfast before serving all day. This is the vision behind the "His Hands, His Feet" Local Missions Event planned for this summer at Orange Friends Church.

We can travel around the world serving others for Christ and may plan a trip like that in the future, but this summer, we are using our time, treasure and talents to help those right here at home. Would you be willing to share what God has gifted you with to help neighbors in need? A crew of dedicated leaders are anticipating a fun week of service from July 30th through August 3rd. We can’t do it alone. God wants us to serve side by side while getting to know each other better. Just like when I went to Honduras and allowed God to use me for whatever was on His agenda, we are seeking OFC family members who will do the same...allow God to use them for His agenda.

Time, Treasure and Talent...God’s given them to you...are you willing to give back to Him?

Sign up for this adventure and see where God leads!
