Long Hollow member and Special Needs volunteer Casey S. shares her weekly experience in this touching story:
It is an absolute treat to get to hang out with the kids in the lhkidz Special Needs classroom every week. Each little person is uniquely wired to somehow make your day a million times brighter than when you first walked in the doors. Whether it’s a big, bright smile with an excited greeting, a bear hug, or getting to see them worship in their own way with true reckless abandon while visiting “big church for live music”, the whole experience is guaranteed to be a spirit-lifter.
Over the past two years these kids have taught me so much about what it looks like to freely love others like Jesus does. My buddies are incredibly special and will forever have a piece of my heart. I’m beyond grateful for them, their sweet families, and this incredible ministry! I would highly encourage anyone who has the slightest curiosity about serving in this ministry to stop in to meet the kids and volunteers, ask questions, & join in on the fun! It’s well worth your time and energy!
