What's In This Blog

I created this blog for my journal. I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. In this blog I keep many of the things I come across as a member of the church. I also share my experiences on the ACE Train and getting to work, my experiences in Manteca where we have lived for three years, and other things I think are noticeable.

JustServe.org: Service Opportunities.

We had Fifth Sunday today, and a presentation on  the website: http://www.justserve.org/  This website is a way to connect those wanting to volunteer time and those looking for volunteers.  It is sponsored by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  But it is more than a church sponsored vehicle.  It is available for all groups to use and post service opportunities, and for people to sign up to provide service.  If you want to give greater service, this is a great website, no matter were you live.  However it is being rolled out in stages.  It is especially active in California.  I noted that opportunities to serve for the Manteca weekend were on the site, and I understand hundreds of hours of service were provided.  I am not sure if this includes the final cleanup where hundreds of people converged on Woodland Park to help with the cleanup.  Anyway, it is not a bragging kind of a thing.  In fact, we all know that he who serves is often blessed more than the person being  served.
