"Serving mankind is loving God. Service knows no boundaries, no limits; and one who chooses this as his path walks with God. In this light the walls of prejudice give way to universal love, and any man in need finds wholeness and help. What of the heart of one who serves? That heart has awakened to a life thats full, a life thats blessed."
Jacqueline Neal
