In 2 sentences, tell us who you are, where you are from, and what you do for GenFeeds:
My name is Forest George, and I am originally from Richmond, Virginia and currently live in Sandston, Virginia with my wife, Lisa. I am currently an independent contractor that works in the Generosity Feeds warehouse, where I primarily setup event pallets to be shipped out to events.
The best piece of advice I’ve ever been given is:
The best piece of advice I’ve ever been given is “that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the Scripture says, ‘Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame.’ For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord over all is rich to all who call upon Him. For ‘whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved (Romans 10: 9-13 NKJV).’”
What advice would you give a candidate who wants to join our team of superstars?
Join the team for the right reasons, and not for the wrong ones.“For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? (Matthew 16: 26 NKJV). Feeding hungry children is a worthwhile cause, for it has been written “inasmuch as you did it toone of the least of these . . . you did it to Me (Matthew 25: 40 NKJV).” Also, as it says in another place, “he who receives you received Me (Jesus), and he who receives Me (Jesus) receives Him (the Father) who sent Me. And whoever gives one of these little ones only a cup of cold water in the name of a disciple, assuredly, I say to you, he shall by no means lose his reward (Matthew 10: 40; 42).”
What’s the most inspiring part of your job?
That I love to serve, and I hate to disappoint. I’m not doing this for man, but I’m doing it to help serve God. Maybe in my human flesh, I love making difference and taking part in a project such as Generosity Feeds, but I thank God for blessing me with the job. I love the ability to listen to sermons and worship music as I setup events, or have complete silence and solitude when I’m setting up events.
The most important thing I learned before high school was:
The most important thing I learned before high school was not much because I was very immature and I was a complete jerk. I really didn’t grow up until during High School, and even then I really didn’t learn anything of value. I really didn’t trust people until I trusted in Jesus at the age of 34, but if I was to answer this question with a positive answer to the best of my ability, I would say I learned from my dad at a young age to try to be confident in what you do, but I probably didn’t use those words until I was at least in my mid- thirties.
If I were a superhero, my superpower would be:
If I were a superhero, my superpower would be most like Batman, because Batman wasn’t a typical fictional character with “magical” powers. He was a hurting individual that with his money and intelligence became a crime fighter and had to use his strength, his brains and his ingenuity. I would hope God has blessed me with the ability to use the tools I use in the warehouse. I never had used a pallet jack before in my life and I wasn’t trained to use it, and I just started using it because God wanted me to learn it. Much like Adam West’s Batman, I work in a Bat-cave and I have a bunch of gadgets to get the job done and I thank God for these people, the tools, and the ability to slowly learn how to develop a game plan from what a coach/leader gives me.
When I was 5, I was pretty sure I’d be a ___ when I grew up:
When I was 5, I was pretty sure I’d be Elvis Presley when I grew up. [Trust God before you trust in idols, but at 5, I wanted to be Elvis. True story.]
