James first served with us 3 years ago, and has been one of our most regular and faithful volunteers ever since. You can see him almost every Saturday work day, with a smile on his face and a story to tell. When asked why he serves with Fully Furnished Ministries, James said, “It’s a part of our calling to serve the least of them.” His advice to everyone is, “If you’re depressed, find someone you can encourage!” Thank you, James! You are an inspiration to us all.
