Caring for Katy 2010

Each year our church takes a day off from our normal Sunday morning activities and we head into our community to serve those in need. That's over 2,000 people out working in our community! I'm so proud of the giving nature of the people in my church and today is a great example of how we try to minister to those in our area. Each adult bible fellowship chooses a project and this year my class chose to help a single mom in the church with a few projects around her house. She lost her 16 year old daughter last December in a car accident, so you can imagine she hasn't been too worried about work around the house.
At the end of the day we had:
-spring cleaned her kitchen, bathrooms, living room and bedrooms
-painted bathroom, interior doors, and baseboards
-installed gutters
-mowed yard/landscaped/laid sod
-installed weather stripping on exterior doors
-power washed the driveway
-left her with a new mower and weed eater for the future!
I think the family was really grateful, and we had a lot of fun working together to bless them. I'm looking forward to more service projects as a class, we're blessed beyond what we deserve and need to make sure we're passing on a portion of what we receive!
