It has been a busy week at Joy In The Cause!

life church switch6 We love our volunteers!  Our office stays busy with our village of angels as they prepare care packages, dress stuffed Mavis dogs, sew quilts and items for the stuffed dogs, and so much more!

Our “sowing” room most definitely lives up to its name. Many seeds of love are sown in this room to bless those who are struggling with a life altering illness or special need.  Many facing the most fearful time of their lives. life church switch

We have many groups who join in and help and one of those groups…. our Life Church volunteers!  It is a joy to have been chosen as one of their mission partners and almost 200 Life Church members volunteer with Joy In IMG_5366The Cause.  Spreading Joy to the community far and wide!  This week the Life Church Jenks Switch Team helped get Mavis dogs ready to go out this weekend.

With almost 500 volunteers, we are able to meet theIMG_3836 huge request for care packages.  Every care package looks different, that is what makes them so special.  Every family has a different need, and we try and help the family where needed most.  Sometimes the smallest things make the biggest difference.
