Encounter in the Park

Encounter2016-SlideDid you know that Valor Ministries also uses music as a way to bless our community?  If not, you soon will…

There is nothing like being in the right place at the right time.  Part of Valor Ministries outreach is through music at the Hagerstown City Park band shell.  You just never know who is passing by and connects with the positive Christian music.  That is exactly what happened one evening.

A woman hurting from the death of her husband and recent job loss was wandering through the park trying to understand how her life could be such a mess.  She met with our Valor Ministries volunteers to talk about what we do.  She immediately connected with the idea of helping those who need help.  She later reached out to our volunteer coordinator to learn we needed exactly her skills.  God’s timing is perfect.

Our new friend started working with us and as she helped others and got to know other staff and volunteers, her life began to change.  The sadness and desperation were replaced with peace.  Within a few months, she was beaming with excitement.  She told our Executive Director that she had her “joy” back! Soon thereafter she was offered a job doing what she loves doing.

It is our pleasure to be there for people struggling with life’s hurts and disappointments.  We become trusted friends who encourage looking for the better in life.
