Women's Ministry sorting out clothes for Philippine Typhoon victims.
I can't explain how amazing it feels to be part of a church family that is active and willing to give up a couple of hours of their Sunday to volunteer. I really feel blessed with the church's support and enthusiasm to work together with the rest of the community to help better Saipan. The Women's Ministry led out in two events this weekend. We had a clothing drive for the typhoon victims for the Philippines. The clothes were sorted out this weekend and will be shipped this month. On Sunday, the SDA Church, School, and Dental Clinic joined Beautify CNMI for a roadside cleanup of the Garapan Tourist District. Over 30 of us helped out! We plan to help out the first Sunday of every month.
Britni was picking up cigarette buds along the gutter and didn't realize some idiot had just tossed a fresh burning one out his car window . . . she picked it up and it burned her glove=( But don't worry, she's okay. Humm, disgusting finds today: a dead rat. It was a beautiful sunny day and some of the jams I was listening on my nano ipod while picking up trash: Stir it up (Bob Marley), In a little while (U2), Dynamite (Jamiroquai) . . . Thank you everyone for showing up! You know I love you, right?! =)
