As a widowed Mom/Grandma/Great-grandma/retired nurse, I have had a few more experiences that a lot of people have had. As a pianist/organist, I have played for lots of events, including birthday parties, weddings, funerals, and multiple church services. I love people. I love being of service to folks. When I first heard of Heaven’s Gain Ministries, whose sole purpose and existence is to help people who are hurting, there was no doubt in my mind that this is something I had to do. To me the height of grief would be the loss of a child. In my family, we’ve had to experience death at different stages of life. No one wants to talk about the death of an unborn child, but it happens. That lost soul deserves to be remembered, not forgotten.
Enter Heaven’s Gain. By volunteering here, in the process of helping folks who are suffering, I have met some awesome women who want to do the same and we totally enjoy one another’s company. There shouldn’t be a need for such small caskets and urns, but there is. Thank God for Heaven’s Gain to allow us the opportunity to provide what families need to get through this.
I am recently retired and was looking for a volunteer job with some purpose. I found it in Heaven’s Gain Ministries! We do a lot of crafting for the caskets and urns. The people in charge are super sweet and caring. The volunteers are terrific also. We have so much fun.
My name is Jack and I’m volunteering at Heaven’s Gain Ministries. I volunteered because I needed service hours for school and I thought they were a good cause to help.
I recently moved to the Cincinnati area and was hoping to find a volunteer opportunity. God answered my desire when I met Kathy after mass and she invited me to join the Heaven’s Gain volunteers. I look forward to coming every week to see new found friends, to catch up on everyone’s lives and to share our stories. Every week so far, we have done something new to help the ministry (i.e. crafting, lots of quality control, and assembling the various items available). I love how much care, concern and respect is shown to this ministry. We try to make sure that everything available for the grieving families is as perfect as it can be. I feel truly blessed to be a part of Heaven’s Gain.
