An Ode to Serve!

Jerome Ocker a Serve Leader Veteran wrote the following poem in 2012 just before we left. Due to another amazing trip opportunity Jerome won't be joining us this summer but as leaders his words resonate with all of us.  Enjoy them as I did again this year as our first group gets ready to leave tomorrow morning!
Wake up in the wilds of Vermont
Spend uninterrupted time with Jesus
Serve with youth helping out other folks
Eat great food
Watch kids learn how to walk with God
Fellowship and worship God
Pray and do some soul searching
Pretend I'm a kid again and do crazy things
- Jerome Ocker
