Wow! What a way for us to end our week of service!! We all met on top of the hill where our students built the fire pit, and we had a chapel service around a campfire. Students led us in worship and many shared about what the week meant to them. We received some letters of thanks from the residents as well as this beautiful painting they made for us. God definitely was in our midst this morning as we were reminded of the redeeming love He has for all of us.
Wednesday was filled with completing all the projects we started! We completed the fire pit and picnic area projects, completed the hammock area, and cleared a walking trail on the grounds for the residents to further enjoy all the natural beauty they are surrounded by while staying out there. We also continued to have some great conversations with the residents as well as have fun playing outdoor games with them.
Mrs. Adair & Mrs. Carlyle advisories enjoyed seeing the fruits of their labor come into fruition on Wednesday. The students who worked outside finished removing old mulch from around the gardens and spreading new mulch. They finished various outdoor landscaping projects, and the results were beautiful! The students working in the food pantry were able to assist local residents with getting the items they need. This social interaction was extremely rewarding for both the students and the people coming into the shelter.
