Saturday's Mission

This past Saturday, our church had a mission project at one of the local trailer parks. We called it the "Save a Lot" ministry, because the trailer park was directly behind the grocery store. We really wanted the people there to know that our church was just a few blocks away and that we cared.

We had activities for the kids, hot dogs, music, the local high school coach gave his testimony and we even had a few door prizes. Although we didn't attract the size crowd we would have liked, the children that did come had a blast. It was so sweet when one little boy said "This is the best day ever!"

On a side note, I am going to end this post with a thought for the day...

"If you let too much room get between you and Christ, you allow yourself room to fall."

That is such a neat thing to do. I'm glad your church is involved in the neighborhood there.

How were the first days of school?

What a great outreach. You may not have had the turn out you wanted, but you reached the ones that showed up and that is all that matters. What a fun time.

Now that was a joy to read.....I love hearing about the Body of Christ doing exactly what Jesus did.

Reaching out and loving others.

What a great ministry you had. Even though not many showed up the effects of how you impacted those that did will grow!

Oh that is an awesome idea! If you don't mind me asking, did you have any trouble getting permission from the trailer park and where on earth did you put all your stuff? It seems like the ones near us don't have alot of room (at least, my parent's park never did.
