My name is Melissa Trumbull and I love service ministry. I currently live in Central Texas. I have six children and one grandson. I was raised as a Baptist. As I grew older, I found that my true foundation is the Word of God. I am ordained through a nondenominational church. I currently do not have a church, but I know that God will lead me to the right one.
I have found out through my journey that you lose a lot of friends and neighbors look at you funny when they find out you are a Christian. Religion isn’t a big deal to some. Going to church or saying you’re a Christian doesn’t mean anything unless you have the actions to back them up. This I have found to be my biggest setback: Learning how to continue to grow in Christ while leaving people behind.
My biggest and most exciting part of my discipleship is being with the elderly. Nursing homes are convenient places for people to drop their loved ones off at. Each time I see an elderly person and they smile and are so happy to see me, it melts my heart and fills me with joy. I have the privilege of serving them and being with them in these later days of their lives here on this earth. They have much history to share and God loves them so much. They are exciting people who are loving, caring, happy, warm, and they can “drop it like it’s hot!” I love this service ministry!
I am so thankful for the life that I have and this ministry training opportunity at Christian Leaders Institute! I am thankful for my husband, kids, and grandkids! And, most of all, for being given the opportunity to serve others as well as my Lord and Savior!
