I retired two years ago. Like many retirees I have found a plethora of things to fill my time. “Fill” is not really the correct word. I have discovered many ways to “fruitfully use” my time.
I’ve been mentoring a young man preparing for ministry, mentoring people at the Homeless Intervention Shelter, helping distribute food at the Food Pantry, and working in the Shelter’s Thrift Store called Charity’s Closet.
One of my most passionate commitments has been working with Habitat for Humanity. For the past four years I have been organizing teams of men and women to build homes with Habitat for Humanity in other countries.
In 2016 I will be leading two trips. In June our team of 14 will be building a home for a needy family on Prince Edward Island.
In October, I’m organizing a team of 15 that will be part of Habitat for Humanity’s Big Build in Viet Nam. This will truly be a life changing event as we participate with groups from around the world to build adequate housing. If you are interested in joining me, contact me and we can talk more about that possibility!VBB Volunteer Flyer (1)
