community service project
hey, so we are now in our second week of mission term. every week we have three half days because on each of those days we, as a team, are supposed to do one of three things. one day we are to do a group community service project, two we are to do a group evangelistic project, and three we are to have personal growth time. so yesterday we set out for our first community service project. we went to a place called family promise. this organization takes in homeless families that are trying to get back on their feet. they have about 12 supporting churches that house these families at night. during the day they can go to family promises hope house, here they can watch tv, do laundry, take showers, and meet with a case worker. so we got to the hope house and started cleaning. and i'm not just talking about sweeping and vacuuming, i'm talking about scrubbing base boards, cleaning their bathrooms, cleaning out their refrigerator, organize everything, and dust. it was honestly one of the most fun and humbling experience i've had a in a while. it was so much fun to be able to just do something nice for these families. i made a short video with the pictures from yesterday... enjoy. sam.
