#tbt A few years ago, I accompanied my husband to a meeting about Vapor Ministries. I am a retired paramedic and teach at a community college, so I thought I was going just to provide moral support to him. Little did I know that I would become so involved with this ministry. I began by volunteering at their thrift store, and then became coordinator of one of their ministries. It's a child sponsorship program that aims to break the cycle of poverty through assisting the poorest of the poor educationally, economically and spiritually. Our family now sponsors a number of children. I have even traveled to Haiti and Kenya on their mission trips. Traveling out of the country with this program has changed my life completely.
