Keeping it Fresh – Volunteer Highlight

2015-10-16 11.07.19-1Emily Sims is one of our most faithful volunteers. I think we could count on one hand the times she hasn’t been at Fresh Friday Ministry. She has created a special environment, treating all who walk through our doors like family. This ministry is such a huge resource to our community and we know we are lucky to have her leadership.

This is her West Nashville Dream Center story.

How long have you served at the WNDC?
3 years
How did you hear about us?
I first served at Adopt-A-Block. And then I saw a post on Instagram about starting the Fresh Fridays and began serving regularly.
What ministry is your fav?
I absolutely love Fresh Fridays!
Best memory?
One of the things I love about Fresh Fridays is the diversity of people we serve. We serve people from Iraq, Kenya, Palestine, Sudan, and our neighbors right across the street. We all come together and pray and socialize, sharing each other’s burdens. Everyone is so grateful and appreciative for the food they receive and concerned for the people sitting next to them.
What is your why?
“Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.” Matthew 5:16. I pray the people I serve are drawn to Christ because of this ministry.
