Shine 2010

Two weeks ago our small group participated in a service day for the city of Jackson. At first our group was assigned to pick up trash. The street was fairly clean so our great leader got us assigned to another another street. As we started walking down this street we came upon a empty lot. This lot was full of trash, mostly empty bottles and car parts. We fill up about 8 trash bags of bottles. During this time one of our small group members fell victim to a thorn bush, taking a scratch or two to the forehead. This little mishap would have stopped most people, but not Beth. She just wiped it off and keep going.

After we cleaned out the empty lot we moved on to walk the street and pick up trash. We found much more trash on this street than we did on the first street. Once we finished with the second street, we all went to get some lunch together and rested before we set out on our third assignment, which was helping at an local elementary school.

The guys really liked this!!

At this site we shoveled piles of dirt into wheelbarrows that was then dumped into tire ruts along the road. Our group got working as soon as we got there. Some of us shoveled, other transported the dirt to the ruts, while others smoothed out the dirt over the ruts. It was a great team effort.

We all had a great time serving the Lord and the people of Jackson.
