Dr. King once said, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is: ‘What are you doing for others?‘” No matter how you choose to celebrate Martin Luther King, Jr. Day this year, this day and every day you can choose to reach out and help someone.

All over the country, there are events and volunteer opportunities happening today to celebrate the spirit of Dr. King.

In Atlanta, the birthplace of Dr. King, The Martin Luther King, Jr. Annual Commemorative Service is being held at the Ebenezer Baptist Church.

Boston University, where Dr. King earned his Ph.D., is holding the Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration at the George Sherman Union. The event is free and open to the public.

A Thanksgiving Food Drive

“On any given night there are more than 2,300 Austinites living on the streets of Austin, in shelters or in other places not meant for human habitation, like cars. Over 900 of those who are homeless would be considered chronically homeless; people who have been homeless for over one year, or four times in the past 3 years.” – www.austintexas.gov

Over the past 3 years my wife, two boys and I have been serving in Puerto Penasco, Mexico. We first started out going down on the weekends, until we were called to go and serve full time.  We been down here for the past two years.

Before becoming a missionary I was working in the corporate world, working long hours and missing the life God had blessed me with at home. I became a slave to the things of this world and worked just to provide things to my family. I wasn’t spending time with them, which is what they needed more than all the material things.
