Ministry of Helps

My school offers an elective called Ministry of Helps (MOH). It is a
program that helps around the school. Being in MOH means being on
time, cleaning restrooms, cafeterias, chapel, offices, gyms, painting
fields and whatever assistance the school needs.

I have been in ministry oh helps all my four years of high school. I
usually work from 3 to 5 hours a week, depending on my class
schedule. It has been a great experience. It is fun helping out the
school with my friends. Whenever we have upcoming events or games,
MOH is always the first group to go and help set up, clean up, or fix
things. Every other day I have this elective class.

Harvest Christian Academy is a great school and I believe it deserves love
and care. I have been going to this school my whole life and I want
to give it the love and care it gave me.


          Ministry of helps is a great opportunity to go and help out the school. I have
been it all my four years of high school. I usually work every week
at school, and it is a lot of fun. It has been a great experience. It
is fun helping out the school with most my friends. Whenever we have
upcoming events or games, MOH is always the first group to go and
help set up, clean up, or fix things. Every other day I have this
class. It is ever other day because my school uses block schedule.
The feeling of knowing i help out my school is a great one. Without
MOH, I’m not sure if Harvest Christian Academy would be as clean as
beautiful as it is. We do not really get recognized or thanked for
our hard work, but that is okay. We have a fun time being in this
elective and do not regret it.

When I was a freshman and sophomore, the school would take us out to eat
once a month as a reward. It felt great being rewarded for all our
hard work. My junior year and senior they stopped taking us out to
eat so they could use the money for new jerseys, for my soccer and
basketball teams. Some people quit because we would not get rewarded,
but not me. During my junior year, there was only two people left in
MOH, my friend and myself. I did not care about the reward, all I
cared about was helping my school.

MOH has taught me a lot throughout my four years of high school. It has
taught me in order to receive rewards, you must earn them through
hard work and dedication. It has also taught me that you do not
allows have to be a follower. Just because everyone quits something,
does not mean I have to. MOH has been a fun and great elective for me
and I do not regret joining.
