Looking back at 2011, one of the biggest highlights for us was our trip to New York back in September. We were there to honor all the lives lost ten years ago on 9/11 by serving at The Bowery Mission and The Relief Bus. It was so much fun to do the show from the ABC News studios in Manhatten...in fact, the entire trip was life changing!
One part of our trip that impacted me the most was serving along side Mandisa and Tenth Avenue North at The Bowery Mission (see the photo below!). We had the opportunity to talk with James Macklin, the Director of Outreach at The Bower Mission, about his story. I was blown away when Mandisa sang "Stronger" for the guests and I walked away a different person, gaining more from serving than being served.
"Serving at The Relief Bus with Big Daddy Weave impacted me equally as we served soup to the homeless. I was changed by serving at both of these ministries."- Scott
"I have to say that serving at The Relief Bus was life changing for me! I was stunned to see that the face of homelessness has changed. There were several people in business suites coming to get soup because they could not afford to buy lunch. In fact, Mike Weaver, from Big Daddy Weave, shared about how it impacted him to be a part of distributing clothing and food that day. It was a humbling and incredible experience."- Kelli
