Friends from Illinois

29 Mar

Christian Help, along with ABLE Families, is currently hosting a group of high school students from St. Peter’s Parish in Geneva, Illinois.  They’ve come to do works of service for the people that our two agencies serve here in Mingo County.

They’re an enthusiastic and very helpful bunch, eager to help out in every way possible.  Last night they chose to forgo the movie night we had prepared for them in order to do extra work cleaning up and organizing Christian Help’s warehouse! 

Much of their time this week is being spent painting a local home.  (Though it’s a bit of a chilly day out — enough that I just brought them some hot chocolate over a few minutes ago — they’re doing it all without complaint.) 

Here are some photos of the work in progress.  (And for your smile of the day, check out the little video of the group that I posted on our Facebook page this morning.  They’re playing a fun little game to start the day off.  See if you can figure out the rules.)
