After six years, volunteering at Morning Glory continues to be a tremendous source of joy for me. It certainly is heart breaking at times to see the difficult conditions that some of our guests have to endure. However, despite these conditions, it is not unusual for a guest that is in dire straits to smile and say that they are blessed. That amount of faith truly inspires me, and I often feel that I get more from our guests than I give by volunteering. I am very fortunate to be a part of this faith based ministry that is a beacon of hope for the less fortunate of Kansas City.
