[Pictures] Operation We Care Allendale

We are in the middle of our Elevate Spring Break Camp, so I’m not going to write too much. I figured this was a good time to share my thoughts from Operation We Care Allendale, and a few photos from the day.

Some other leaders and I talked during and after this day, and we agreed that this was a great event! I truly believe it had a better “feel” than I had experienced in other years, for 2 reasons:

  1. There was a great number of local volunteers. By my count there were almost 90 volunteers from Allendale County, and about that many from outside of the county.
  2. Many of the out-of-town volunteers seemed to have a mindset that they wanted build and continue relationships, as opposed to a one-and-done experience.

I am thankful for everyone who took part, and worked so hard to make Allendale a better place!

    I have been following your postings for quite some time – praying, a few comments here and there, celebrating – watching you consider your move and hearing your prayers for others to come. I live in Canada and we too have places similar to Allendale. Just a couple of weeks ago I was asked to move to Rock Hill SC – interesting…..
