The volunteers from Compassion Ministries don’t worry about the weather. They’re more interested in a LightBreak of climate change by creating a contagious warm atmosphere in the hearts of folks at the Flagstaff Shelter. Truth be told, they really don’t change much of anything. The folks at the Shelter are extremely warm-hearted. The staff is awesome. We’re overwhelmed with admiration for the patient way they treat everyone with respect.
There’s a lady behind the desk named Levette who always goes the extra mile to make visitors feel welcome and valued. She does her best to remember their names and attend to any special needs they might have. Even when a heavy snow drives up the number of people who seek shelter. She patiently shows compassion - even while making sure everyone respects the boundaries and rules at the shelter. There's a few other great people who go the extra mile to help us, Brynn, Jamie, Nick, Ina and Bailey. All of you guys are awesome!
Because of the dedicated staff taking care of business, our volunteer staff can concentrate on creating heart-smiles. As usual Marvin and Alan cooked up a fabulously nutritious dinner. With help from Mare, Marlee, Jayci, and Bob they served up a great meal.
This was “Sock Night” as we brought large quantities of socks for men and women. Frigid weather causes wet and cold feet. Warming the feet is like kindling for heart-fires with smiles!
Our next Shelter Outreach is Feb 15 - the day after Valentines Day. Would you like to share your heart! 💝 Come and volunteer or donate some socks or clothes. We’d love to have you join us.

Thanks for your time.
Go do something nice for somebody.
Jesus loves you and so do we.
