"There is an impact on both ends." - Youth Director Calvin KonopDonnell felt that Servant of Christ and Ebenezer churches were both learning about outreach together as they did it. “They learned what true service looks like and that it is not going to be easy. Sometimes you have to take the initiative and go out of your way to meet a need,” said Donnell. “We were able to see examples of what we can do beyond Sunday to make an impact. We were learning with them. We were able to see first-hand the impact we could have if we dedicate ourselves to serving.” Donnell felt like Praying Pelican Missions came to his church “For such a time as this,” much like Esther’s story in the Bible. “We were on the cusp of something and Praying Pelican came along and they showed us what service looks like beyond Sunday. We were on the brink of that. Who knows whether or not they are here for such a time as this, to help us get to a higher level in the community as far as our service to them. We have the people, we have the facility, we have everything we need, we just need to do it.”
