We worked with Operation Blessing. They are a Christian based disaster relief organization.
We cleaned up debris from a house that had been demolished. The house belonged to an 80 year old woman who had to have help cleaning up her lot.
Some of us took turns working at the headquarters. We cleaned. worked in a food pantry, did computer work, and helped fix meals for the volunteers.
This house belonged to a single Mom with 2 kids and no insurance. She needed the rest of her house demolished and the debris carried to the street. We did this for her.
Here is her lot completely debris free! It felt good to complete this for her.
The men from our team were able to assist in the construction of a new home.
We visited the elementary school that was destroyed in the tornado. A very sad sight to see. Seven children lost their lives here in May 2013.
Our group consisted of 13 adults and 13 kids from our youth group.
It was an amazing life changing week.
Thank God every day for all your blessings.
