VIP Testimonies:

Dennis & Merry help in our Snack/Gift Shop:

"It is our privilege to Volunteer at Ponderosa, serving alongside the fun, gracious and committed Staff, Interns & Volunteers. All have an eternal mindset of building into the lives of our guests who grace Ponderosa with their presence, hoping when our guests leave, that God has worked through Ponderosa to have a life-long impact on their souls."

Bruce & Sandy have helped in our Dining Hall:

“They will still yield fruit in old age; they shall be full of sap and very green to declare that the Lord is upright; He is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in Him.” Psalm 92: 14-15

We found out about the volunteer program at Ponderosa from our teenaged grandchildren who also worked there. Since Bruce had a lot of food service experience, we were assigned to the dining hall. That was two years ago... we have worked with two amazing chefs and with some of the greatest hard-working, respectful, fun, young people imaginable! We are full-time RVers, and we’re very thankful for the lovely site provided for us. If the Lord wills it, we will definitely be back next summer.
