Praise the Lord!
Marvin, our senior volunteer, is holding the 'Applause Meter' that was used to measure applause for a talent act during the 'Senior's Day Talent Show'. Not really high tech, but, a great visual aid for measuring the applause for a talent act performed for seniors by seniors. Marvin Shold was its navigator who moved the red arrow. He was always smiling. He also dressed in a Santa Clause costume with his wife, Jan, during Christmas events, but, that is another headline story!
Marvin and Jan Shold were very involved volunteers helping at 'Senior's Day' events, Holiday GiveAways, and special events for children dressing in costume. They also volunteered to pick up food donations with their own van weekly and deliver them early in the morning. Marvin has physical disabilities and Jan is legally blind. They first came to Pastor Paul's Mission and said they wanted to do something to help. This was their way of giving back that continued for many years. We appreciated their hard work and many kindnesses through those years. The 'Applause Meter' is off the charts for Marvin and Jan Shold!

"I am a man who worked for the "Mission of Pastor Paul" in the years of "1980-1988"..what I have truly enjoyed was the respect and dedication People had in Helping one another in a Great way!-I loved the Humor ,the Dance and the Excitement Paul had on stage and the great example he set for the Understanding of feeding the Poor--We first met at his Ministries in 1974-where he preached for the many people about the ways of devoting our Lives to ways of Jesus---I will never forget the excitement of the people hearing the Word of God---and the Challenge in Helping in the Mission!--God has blessed the World because of such a Great Man !---Paul has Devoted his Life for the cause of Feeding the Poor!"
