We are collecting cans of Progresso soup during the season of Lent, beginning February 25 and ending March 25. The soup will be donated to the Richmond Food Shelf. Staff at the Food Shelf request that we provide Progresso soup, as all varieties have a consistently high nutritional value and it is popular with their customers. During Holy Week, our soup cans we be turned into a prayer labrynth – come and see!
HOLY WEEK SERVICES
EASTER SERVICES – April 1, 2018
Monday – Day 1 – The Team rocked it today!!!!
We got 31 panels built in total. That’s one house plus 4. Each house has 7 window panels and 2 door panels per house. The window panels are harder to build. Despite the heat and unfamiliarity with the building process, we worked well together, had fun, and were very productive. Tomorrow morning we begin our workday at 8am by painting panels, and then loading one house on the truck to transport to the first build site. We will also paint and build more panels for house 2. Some members of our group will begin assembling the panels at the green house. The other house will be painted pink. The families choose their house color and many prefer bright colors.
We ended our first work day with seeing the sunset at Guinos Beach – the surf beach. The sun sets around now 6 pm it disappears very quickly below the horizon here, but wow is it gorgeous. I didn’t get any pictures, but hopefully someone else will post some!
Thank you for your prayers- keep them coming!
