Story by Michele Joseph
Now that the Priska Volpes’ children are grown, she participates in pastoral visits with her husband, James, at the Valley View and Beckley Seventh-day Adventist churches in West Virginia. They team up for health lectures, where she offers cooking demonstrations. She also has her own ministry. While reading Desire of Ages as part of her worship routine, she was struck with the idea to give out one Steps to Christ per day. The idea frightened Volpe, who is a shy woman and doesn’t like crowds. But she’s learned a lesson about God asking for what seems like hard requests.
“I have noticed when I do accept things, it is personal growth,” she said. “When I do something that is outside your comfort zone and stretch yourself, it helps you grow.”
