About ten youths and their adult leaders visited our Home this month and took on the much-needed task of cleaning up our backyard. Weeding the flower beds and around the large trees was most of the work. Their efforts really made a difference, and looked especially well with the newly-cut grass.
These students were part of a service mission project from Glen Oak Christian Church in Peoria, Illinois, doing volunteer work for non-profits in the Saint Louis area. The church is a congregation of the Disciples of Christ and volunteers stayed at the church on Union here in Saint Louis. We were very happy that they chose our Home as a place for them to exercise their Christian faith and put it into action. May they be blessed for their thoughtfulness and service
