I have previously shared how RV owners are well equipped to be volunteers. You have your own portable abode and therefore require few resources or lodging from the group you are serving.
I recently had the privilege of taking my RV to Double K Christian Retreat Center and assisting in a youth group camp. I was treated to a spacious full hookup RV space under the shade of a towering Ponderosa pine. I was also treated to interacting with some upstanding young people that will be the leaders of tomorrow. When I agree to help at youth events, I always tell myself I am going to help the kids, but, in reality, I come away as the one receiving the benefit. With all the negativity about today’s youth on the news and seeing questionable behavior out and about in my home town, knowing there are still some well grounded and responsible youth in this world gives me hope for the future. It really is refreshing and uplifting.
So next time you need a lift, sign up to be a volunteer. Many organizations need your help and will welcome a volunteer with their own home on wheels. As the Lord Jesus himself said: “It is more blessed to give than to receive.” (Acts 20:35). Serving others, just another great adventure in RVing!
