A Talk on Service!

This was such a great experience! Alec was asked to speak at West Ridge Academy. This is a school that helps struggling teenagers and their families. A friend in our neighborhood asked if Alec would talk at a devotional on his FTWOTC fundraiser. When she introduced Alec, she told of how when she first moved in to our neighborhood with her son and his wife, they had told her about a boy who did this service project. Then she explained how when she saw how young this boy was, she was so impressed and amazed! She thought it was wonderful that a young man would care enough about others at a time in his life when it may be much cooler to care only about himself. She thought he would be able to help these young boys know how service can make even a teenagers life so much more full!!
