Mark Kent, a member of Kelowna Gospel Fellowship, is also one of our valuable Guest Services volunteers. Mark has been volunteering for a year and a half. When he heard we had a need for volunteers in Guest Services Mark felt the call to step out and see how he could fit in.
Mark says “It always is a two way street, as I step out with availability I’m always blessed with growth and relationships. Meeting the clients and building a connection with people has been so real. We all have stories and we’ve all come from different places. To some, KGM is their home, family and they take real ownership. I think that speaks volumes to the ministry and the people who work at KGM.
"One day a young man told me things weren’t going well. He had lost some things and had a number of disappointments, but he was so upbeat. He was happy to share he had made a commitment to follow Jesus and his outlook on life had changed so much. He knew everything would work out and he had patience to manage his situation. Sometimes the blessings and reflections of a conversation are for my own growth!”
Mark has been an absolute blessing to the Mission!
