That being said, I thought I would make it known that I will be serving with the Quaker Voluntary Service (QVS) for 11 months starting September. I am still waiting to find out what organizations and agencies I will be serving under, but I will have a full-time position offering direct support to marginalized individuals and communities, as well as striving to transform unjust structures. I was placed in the city of Portland through the discernment of QVS's staff.
Also, I will be an intern with Friends of Jesus Fellowship during the summer, a Christian Quaker network of ministries and fellowships "gathered around a common experience of the living presence of Jesus in our midst". I will be helping with the Detroit FoFJ church, but also volunteering 4-days a week at the Ruth Ellis Center, whose mission is to provide short-term and long-term residential safe space and support services for runaway, homeless, and at risk youth.
I ask that you would prayerfully consider donating to my GoFundMe or click on the 'Donate' button on the right side of this page. Also, pray for me so that I can be a genuine minister of reconciliation and a vessel of the Spirit of Christ.
