it has been a busy week for 2nd church! We’ve helped to paint the Miriam Center, build tables in the birthing center, and visit with families in the community.
today, we got to give away animals to families in the community. 4 men received donkeys that can be used as a means to provide income for their family. 5 households received a pair of goats. Each family will give the first born goat back to the church so that ministry can continue. A group of ladies showed up for choir practice/ Bible study and were surprised with chickens for their households. It was great to see the joy on their faces!
This afternoon, we held a Valentine’s party for the elderly residents. They sang special songs, gave speeches, danced, ate lots, and had fun. It was great to experience that alongside them and their caretakers.
