On Sunday, Epimaque of the Light Mission Pentecostal Church (LMPC) told me that he had the week off from work and that he would bring a group by the church on Tuesday to help out. Well, today he came by and was joined by members of the church. They said they wanted to help because they appreciate the hospitality.
Two fellows joined Ed Johnson in the kitchen to help prepare lunch for the children from the neighborhood and from the Intersession program.
One of the women from the church helped out with the childcare program on the third floor that is provided for the infants and toddlers of the ELL adult students. She and her baby fit right in.
Another fellow helped by cleaning windows in the church. A constant need.
And most helped in the garden, raking downed leaves and picking up trash that gets lodged in the little nooks and crannies around the big church campus.
