Some of us love these characters with powers to fly, scale skyscrapers, and catch bad guys. Some of us, however, tend to embrace the less exceptional guys who don’t have any phenomenal powers. They may rely on cool, high-tech gadgets, but mostly, they’re just like us. We cheer for a hero who feels compelled to make the world a better place.
These individuals-turned-protectors remind us of those who volunteer at Royal Family Kids’ Camp every year. Our volunteers want to make a difference in the lives of children who’ve suffered abuse or neglect. Each of them is considered ordinary – no capes, no abilities to fly, no x-ray vision. Yet the moment they say “yes” to the call and step out in faith, they’re supplied with everything they need to accomplish their duties at camp. Saturated with God’s Spirit, they’re able to give beyond normal ability, perform above natural talent, and love and serve even when nothing is left in the tank.
This year is our first time with North Texas Giving Day and we couldn’t be more excited. Any proceeds received will be used to introduce more hurting children to our own variety of local heroes.
