Ark Aid is a mission organisation in downtown London that provides food every night for those who are in need of it. This year, London Christian High was considering no longer sending teams to volunteer once a month to serve food and connect with those who come to the Ark. However, after a session of brainstorming and planning on how we could bring Jesus to the community at the Grade 12 Retreat, the senior students decided to step up and continue the tradition after all. Volunteering at Ark Aid has given the opportunity for students to touch others’ lives, and in turn, their own lives have been affected. More and more students throughout all the grades are now developing an interest in serving the community and the Kingdom of God at the Ark. We pray that our involvement at Ark Aid will cause a lasting impact on everyone involved; that students will continue to grow as servants and as people, and that the love and greatness of God will shine through to the people who need it most – both at the Ark and wherever the students may end up.
