Wewoka Welcomes Volunteer
WEWOKA, OKLA. – On Aug.10, Wewoka Woods Adventist Center received volunteer Andrew Block who will be serving with us for six months. Block, who is from Buenos Aires, Argentina, recently finished high school and committed the next six months to serve in a mission field abroad before starting college.
Through our denomination's world-wide volunteer program, Adventist Volunteer Service, Block applied and was accepted to serve in our conference. Block’s main responsibility will be to assist our camp ranger, Sam Hutchinson, with the various needs throughout the camp. In addition, as time permits, he will be preaching at some of the local churches.
When asked why he decided to leave the comforts of his home country and travel thousands of miles away to serve in a place he didn’t know, he gave many great responses.
One that stood out was that he wanted to be in a place where he had to rely fully on God and trust His promises, strengthening his relationship with Him.
We are thankful for young men and women like Andrew who are willing to dedicate their lives for a period of time to serve fully in the Lord's work. We pray that other young people will be inspired and will consider taking time off to serve as missionaries. If you or a young person you know is interested in serving as a missionary overseas, please contact the Oklahoma Conference youth department for guidance and counsel on how to make this a reality.
