A "Thank You" note came in the mail the other day from the kids at the Palmetto Place Children's Shelter. It contained a picture of some art they created to express their gratitude for the improvements done to their house during Serve Our City 2013. What they don't know is that we were blessed to give more than they were to receive. (Acts 20:35)
Serve Our City 2013 was an awesome outpouring of love in the name of Jesus. In this three day event, we cleaned up 4 yards for elderly women and for a children’s shelter. We renovated a meeting room at the department of Social services where foster children meet with their birth families. And we poured ourselves into the facilities of the Palmetto Place children’s shelter, installing new flooring, hanging 30 new window blinds, doing repairs and maintenance, and painting, painting and more painting!
Over these three days, 155 volunteers from GraceLife gave 1200 hours of their time and through donations and YOUR giving to GraceLife, we were able to purchase over $6,000 in materials and supplies to get the job done.
Thank you to those who prayed, those who gave, and those who went. We praise you, God, for shining your goodness and Your Glory through us.
