“WHAT CAN I DO FOR YOU?” were Bruce Pruitt’s first words when he decided to volunteer at Mel Trotter Ministries. “If you need help with anything, just let me know,” he said before setting out chairs, Bibles and Prayer Request Forms and just being present to care for the guests and other volunteers. He has done this almost every day for over five years, taking only a short time off recently to grieve the death of his son.
We asked Bruce what drives him to serve. During a dark time in his life, Bruce received a letter from a friend who had written of God’s goodness in her life, “God restored me!” As Bruce was about to respond, he heard an audible voice asking, “What about you?” Bruce recommitted his life to Christ at that moment and vowed to serve others.
OUR VOLUNTEERS ARE CALLED TO SERVE IN MANY WAYS, FOR MANY REASONS: a desire to give back, their belief in Jesus Christ, or family tradition. They have outwardly responded to God who keeps asking, “What about you?” We thank God for Bruce Pruitt and all the volunteers at MTM!
