This Christmas, we #LoveBeyondCircumstances
Heart of a Servant
By: Tiffany Oliver
“I think I have the heart of a servant because of The Salvation Army serving me and my family when we needed it the most.”
“They served me so that’s why I serve now”
The Salvation Army officers and staff were true servants. They had the biggest hearts and were the most selfless people. They got us Christmas gifts, gave me the opportunity to learn how to play an instrument, and paid for my sister and me to go to camp every summer. They never once judged any of us or our situations. They treated my parents and family kindly and never criticized them on why our clothes were dirty or why they hadn’t fed us all day. The few times my mom came to church, they hugged her as if they’ve known her for years.
After high school, I joined the military for 15 years and then became the police officer I am today. I serve because I’m passionate about what I’m doing, and I love what I do. I’m not in this for the money; I’m in this for the service I provide to others.
