The Blessing of Serving Others
As some of you may know I spent a week last month with a group of men from my church building a home for a family in a disadvantaged region of Mexico. It was one of the most moving and rewarding experiences of my life.
As somebody who has made a career in the world of philanthropy I believe strongly in the notion of putting your money where your mouth is. Still, like a lot of people, I don’t think enough about giving beyond just writing a check. I was grateful for this experience in Mexico because it allowed me to connect in so many new and different ways—to the family we were helping, to my fellow volunteers. It was a shared experience that none of us will soon forget.
