Louisa’s desire to serve and go on a mission is deeply influenced by her grandmother who was a dedicated and faithful Christian. Due to her line of work and family obligation, going on a mission trip is a challenge. 105 Gibson Centre became her local mission field.
Louisa is a regular volunteer since 2013 when the Centre first opened. She feels energized each time she steps into the Centre even after putting in long hours at work. Being at the front desk reception, she is able to meet many people. She tries to remember their names and make them feel welcome. Many of the visitors are now her friends.
Among the many people she has met, she is most touched by the food bank clients. The more she put herself into their shoes, the more she feels fortunate, blessed and thankful for what she has. They become her drive to be humble, to give and share with compassion.
Being a volunteer at the Centre is very rewarding for Louisa. She thanks God for the privilege to serve and to witness His works at 105 Gibson. She also encourages others to join her as a volunteer.
“Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise—the fruit of lips that openly profess his name. And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.” (Hebrews 13:15-16)
