Leadership Task Force (LTF) displayed ownership in living for the sake of others in a series of service projects conducted in Nepal this December. Projects included renovating a local school, providing character education for children, and participating as mentors in a sports festival for the local community. Isul Jimenuz Dure from Colombia shared her moving testimony following her Nepal experience.
“What I realized during the volunteering service time was that if I really put all my heart in everything that I do, being a real owner of every single thing, that mindset will turn into my actions, and my actions is something that the people will see and I will be able to transform people’s hearts. In Dhading, I was able to see that, although I wasn’t able to talk so much with the volunteers during the program, as the days went by, I was able to see how they were getting inspired by the fact that people from different countries came to support their country. On the last day, I was so surprised, because one guy told me that he really wanted to make a contribution for other people; that he really wanted to share all that he was able to learn during this time here and that he really wanted to make a change. Those words were so precious to me because, even through small actions, we can start to make a change for the sake of God. Having an ownership mentality is not easy, but I was able to see how much impact it had on the people.” -ISUL JIMENEZ DURE, COLOMBIA
