Church Has Left the Building

Last weekend was "Church Has Left the Building", so that is what we did! We went out into the community to do some repairs, clean up whatever they needed to a school in desperate need! We were supposed to do this a while back, but got rained out. The school had even gotten water in it the day before during the torrential rains we had. I haven't heard how many all together showed up ready to work, but it was a bunch! We rock!

Our small group had the nastiest of all jobs, not sure why they assigned us to the "Stinky MudPit" which we lovingly called it. Maybe they knew we could do it, we're tough and strong, or maybe they were punishing us for some reason!
me, Matt, Shawna, Einar and Tanya. heave ho!
Most got painting curbs (Laura) or painting picnic tables, landscaping, etc... But we got to dig up a pond, an old waterfeature, in the teachers atrium. Remember I said we had tons of rain lately? Well the pumps didn't work on this particular pond and the water was stagnant and nasty! We had to take out all the rocks boulders, liner, water, weeds, frogs, earthworms, etc., out of the muck filled hole and fill it back in!
The kids were not thrilled when we got there, but they busted butt and hauled rocks, dug up weeds, played with frogs and doodlebugs, and after we were finished, they were all glad they helped!
But you know what? It was fun... we spent the day serving in our community, sharing the Gospel by our works and getting blessed by doing it! Sunday Night Survivors ROCK!
I saw this group on Facebook and it's so true!
Here is a link to our GO site too, much more pics!

That is SO true Kris!! It's har work but it's made light because you are serving the Lord and His children. It's one of my favorite things to do and I need to do it more often. Thanks for the reminder.
