Ain't Done With Me Yet
“God is so present here and at
work in a new way”
by Ryan Corr
Just over 2 years ago, I had just given my
life over to the Lord and was trying to live
my life for Him at home, but it just wasn’t
working out. I could either stay in Belfast
and forget about the God things, or leave and
go somewhere where I could focus on the Lord
without the distractions of my life back home.
I decided to do a GAP year of service and was
chosen to serve in Detroit.
Words cannot explain the type of year I had.
I got to know the Lord in a deeper way, served
the poor at the soup kitchens and on the
street, worked with K-3 grade kids at a local
school, and helped run a youth group for high
school youth. The main blessing is the
relationships which I have built; with the
poor and needy, those that help serve them,
and most importantly, the high-school youth.
They have impacted my heart and my time here.
Hearing their stories, sharing in their
struggles, and helping them is why I came back
for a second year.
I knew God wasn’t done with me yet. During
this second year, I have grown in my love for
the Lord and my understanding of Him and who
he is. God is so present here and at work in a
new way and I am excited to see it. I see him
in the youth and especially the homeless I
work with. My life has truly changed. Detroit
will always have my heart
