August saw about 40 Woodlanders travel to East St. Louis.  We spent the week ministering at the Christian Activity Center in all sorts of ways.  Our projects ranged from washing walls to constructing a metal shed to building raised beds in the Community Garden.
     We loved the time spent with people we met at the Center, building new relationships and supporting the people who help build lives in their neighborhood.  And we loved hanging out together in the evenings!
     Consider joining our next trip–we include people of all ages and all skill levels!
      A love for Jesus and for others and a heart willing to serve are the primary requirements.
