Thanks so much to the guys and gals who gave up a Saturday morning to rake leaves in the cold!
The morning began in Countryside Farms, at Jason's neighbor's house, where we had the privilege of leaving the owner an encouraging note. He insisted on giving us money, so after he went inside we placed the money in his mailbox with a note saying that "Just as Christ's love is free, so is our leaf raking." After raking the lawns of two elderly residents, we were blessed to stop at the home of a family who knew Tim Wolf (who is also a resident of Countryside Farms). Their daughter had participated on the orange team during the 2014 Summer Blast. She was particularly happy that we spared her and her sister from having to rake the leaves. :) Our last stop was at the home of a woman named Kathy. She was incredibly appreciative of our service because her husband Andrew has been in the hospital. She said us coming was God looking out for her and her husband. She took down the name of our church and our contact information. We closed out the day with a quick lunch at Forno and prayed for those we interacted with.
Overall, it was a great time with friends while practically showing the love of Christ through service!
