Northeast Team-July 14, Working Hard

The Northeast team was able to encourage the Grace Brethren Church of Calvert County in a big way today. From early this morning till the late afternoon the students worked very hard at cleaning up the church. There was a group of students that went to help a family who is in need. They went to a house that belongs to a widow, who is now in a nursing home, and cleaned out her basement. This was a huge burden for this family that has now been lifted. We will never realize the encouragement that today had on this family. These students were able to sing for an elderly woman named Gene.
The rest of the students that stayed at the church helped in several different ways. Some of the jobs included: weeding and mulching, cleaning the inside of the church, and painting the parking lines. The students worked very hard without complaining on this hot day.
The team ended there time together today with a teaching time from Bekah and Erik. They learned the importance of living on mission all the time. Pray for us as we continue to serve the Lord.
