What is your favorite #MOCmoment? Before I volunteered, we had a request for a band I was working with -Judah and the Lion;
It was from MOC in Dallas. I brought the band to Dallas Children’s Hospital and they played for so many kids. One young boy was so happy his toes were dancing. It was filmed by MOC. That was the day I learned about MOC and I knew I wanted to volunteer
