Jessica Lewis, a Center for Student Missions team member, recently recounted a touching experience, in which she heard about and met someone with Scleroderma for the very first time. According to Jessica, "We don't always get to see the effect of what it is we are doing, but yesterday I got to see it. I am so glad I asked to deliver this meal and that I got to meet this sweet, precious lady who had such a positive outlook on life. I got to see one last time how God is working here in New York City. He knew just how to perfectly end my summer."

Read about Jessica's full experience here, on the CSM Urban Update blog. Jessica's experience reminds us, that no matter how little we can do or give, it goes some way toward making a difference in someone else's life. We hope that you do enjoy reading her story.
