From One of the Crew

The Well is a community of all kinds of different people. Though we are all different, all of us have needs and all of us come to The Well to encounter Jesus in one another. The whole operation depends on individuals who come here to both give life and receive it. We have many beautiful people that make up the mosaic that is this community, this representation of the body of Christ. Allow me to introduce you to one such individual. Kineci is champ. She is here at least two days every week and is always willing to engage guests, get her hands dirty in the back room, or coach and lead newer volunteers. She is a joy to be around and an inspiration to all of us who have the privilege of calling her a partner and friend. I recently asked her to write about her experience here and it turns out that she already had on her own blog! Here is what she had written:

I learned about The Well during a bible study session at the University. I started serving here in October of 2013. Words cannot express the amount of joy I have serving in this ministry. It's an indescribable feeling I have when I feed those who are hungry, give water to those who are thirsty, and clothe those who have nothing other then the clothes on their backs to wear.
The most important part about serving with The Well however, is meeting all of God's people where Jesus met most of his believers, on the streets. You see people misconstrue what exactly it is that we do here. Most of our visitors who come to The Well daily think that they need us and are thankful that we take the time to care for them, it is us who need them though. I need to feed those who are hungry and encourage any who have lost faith.
God is not dead, he is yet alive and through this ministry I am able to do the very thing that God has called me to do. And even though I do not deserve to hear it, I look forward to the day that my father tells me, "Well done, my good and faithful servant"
