Youth and adults from South Santiago Lutheran Church in Clear Lake, MN showed up at Gloria Dei’s doorstep ready to work. Their smiles and attitudes radiated the love of Christ. We got out all the tools and after a brief orientation to Gloria Dei they jumped right in to work.
Here’s a list of all the things they did (I may miss something):
- Weeded and mulched all flower beds
- covered the cross mound with gravel, rock and rock edging
- Trimmed every single bush that needed to be trimmed
- Removed dead shrubs
- Cleared ground cover around A/C units for better circulation
- Painted the Sunday School hallway
- Moved all office furniture from flood to Johnson Hall
- Shampooed the sanctuary carpet
- Power washed the entire front walkways
- Cleaned, power washed and sealed the front benches
- Removed rotted playground equipment
- Removed rotted lattice from arbor
- Sprayed playground for weeds
- and on and on and on…
It was wonderful to see these incredible acts of love from this wonderful group. Let’s all give God a prayer of thanks for them and for safe travels and they finish their week and head back to Minnesota.
Stop by and see their wonderful work!
What a week! God is good!
