God's Work. Our Hands. -- August 16, 2015

Many were blessed. You made the difference!

Here's how:

+ 400 bandages will go all over the world via Global Health Ministries to provide the most basic healthcare assistance.

+ Plymouth Street Ministry, direct care to Eau Claire's homeless, now has a more organized space to find just the exact article of clothing that someone will need as the weather changes.

+ Over 65 volunteers were fed a nutritious lunch after their hard work!  Volunteers continued their work by assisting with the luncheon clean-up!

+ Guests at Beacon House, a homeless shelter for families, were treated to a warm brunch that's a real change from their usual cold cereal breakfast.

+ An entire team learned about the work of the Boys and Girls Club in Downtown Eau Claire!

+ Over 38 of our members in 16 assisted-living facilities received a hand-delivered paper flower in a pot! Many enjoyed the visit as much as the gift delightfully enhanced by our children.

+ One homeowner (a congregation member) was blessed by a weeded garden, something that is now very difficult to accomplish due to the owner's health issues.

+ The invasive weed count is far less at Boyd Prairie Park!

+ A storage unit filled with household items is now very well organized so that individuals can pick just the items they need for their new situation - life off the streets!

+ When folks were waiting for lunch to be served, there was a DIY work station for those who were still anxious to help by ripping sheets and cleaning off the loose threads to make the next set of bandages!

THANK YOU!  THANK YOU!  THANK YOU!
