Today was a fantastic day! Thanks for your prayers on the weather. It turned out to be a beautiful day with a cool breeze and overcast skies.
We worked up and down a long street today in a nearby neighborhood. Our team of 69 tackled 14 homes and finished them all by 3:30 p.m. We scraped and painted, cleaned gutters, did yard work, painted more, install porch railing, fixed a leaky faucet and then painted. You would be so proud of our young people. They serve with the best attitudes and hearts. I could not be prouder.
We hustled back to the hotel to take showers and change clothes for our evening performance at the Triumphant Life Christian Church in Highland Park area. The Detroit Ministerial Alliance had planned a service of healing dealing with all of the racial tension and heartbreaking violence in our nation. It was rich blessing to be a part of this service that focused on love, unity, and respect for all life because of our Christian faith. The youth were deeply touched by the generosity, hospitality, and love of those in attendance.
We didn't eat supper until 9 p.m. and returned to the hotel around 10:20 p.m. So it was a full 12 hour day. Tomorrow is another long day. Thanks for your love, support, and prayers.
