Brooke

After volunteering at a Convoy of Hope community outreach, Brooke Prahl, 18, took her passion to serve and masterminded her own outreach.  In August, Prahl’s New London, Wis. community will provide help and hope to hundreds of low-income families, senior citizens, single mothers and those with physical disabilities through Prahl’s outreach, Mission of Hope.

Prahl believes Mission of Hope will be a catalyst for ongoing community service. “I volunteered with Convoy of Hope and it inspired me to make a difference,” says Prahl. “There were people who were in need that I didn’t see before and now I see them. If it wasn’t for Convoy of Hope, I wouldn’t have had this vision.”

“Brooke’s efforts to organize her own community outreach event in her area is one of the reasons Convoy of Hope exists,” says Ron Showers, community outreach director for Convoy of Hope. “By helping people, we also hope to inspire others to do the same.”

Like Convoy of Hope, Prahl’s outreach will feature areas of service such as family portraits, a food tent, free groceries, haircuts, health services, a job fair, a kids zone and a prayer tent.  Mission of Hope is a celebration of community at its best.  In our preparations for Saturday August 23, 2014 we are rallying servant leaders together for a day of service to residents who would be willing to be our honored guest.  This event is a mere catalyst for the ongoing joy of volunteering and community service.  This will be a day where we anticipate serving hundreds of low income-families, seniors, widows/widowers, single parents, and anyone with physical disabilities.  These are our “Guests of Honor.”
