January 7 – February 5, 2021
This month we’re serving at Lake Wales Care Center, which is a multi-faceted ministry serving their community through thrift stores, food banks, housing, counseling, meals on wheels, etc. Here is their mission statement – Lake Wales Care Center is a faith based community service organization which demonstrates Christ’s love by building bridges between people in need and people with a desire to serve.
We’ll be getting a bit more of an orientation when we start work on Monday, but right now it looks like we’ll all be working at one of their newer thrift store locations. The guys will be building shelves, etc., and I think we ladies will be sorting and organizing. Since they don’t have any RV sites of their own, we are parked at Lake Aurora Christian Camp, located just outside of town. Pretty much we’re backed up to an orange grove – and it’s really quite lovely!
I’m sure I’ll have lots of stories as the month goes by!
