“TRUST PACKS”

WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  GO TEAM EARLY RISERS LIFEGROUP!!!  DOUBLE WOO-WHOOOOOO, WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!

BAM!!!  Friday, 8/19/16 was AMAZING, folks!!!  The “Early Risers” LifeGroup of Anastasia Baptist Church met for dinner, friendship, fellowship AND…a “TRUST PACKS” packing event!!!  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  I ABSOLUTELY love, Love, LOVE this group!!!  And its community outreach with HOME AGAIN ST JOHNS!!!  DOUBLE WOO-WHOOOOOO, WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!

In a nut-shell, This “Early Risers” LifeGroup collects non-perishable food items for the St. Johns County homeless population over a few-months-time-period and then meets to pack 200+ gallon zip-lock “TRUST PACKS,” each filled with items, such as:  water, canned meats and canned fruits (pop-top lids, of course), cracker sandwiches, chips, cookies, breakfast bars, hard candies, hand-i-wipes, etc.

I was so honored to attend my first-ever “Packing” event Friday evening, 8/19/16 from 6-8:30 pm.  The food was GREAT, potluck-style.  The friendship and fellowship was pretty GREAT also.  But let me tell ya’ll…the GREATNESS truly began during the organized line-packing event.  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  Now, this is when the super-duper GREATNESS of the evening kicked into OVER-DRIVE!!!

I think there were about 10-12 “Early Risers” present last evening.   And yep, “WE”…???…???…???…WERE FOCUSED, folks!!!  Focused on having fun as we danced, sang, chuckled and chatted while strolling through the assembly line to package-up “TRUST PACKS”.  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  “Singing, dancing, chuckling and chatting”… while we worked!!!  DOUBLE WOO-WHOOOOOO, WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  😉

FINAL COUNT…???…???…???…was somewhere between 225-250 “TRUST PACKS” we packaged in gallon-sized zip-lock bags for delivery by our friends at Home Again St. Johns to area homeless “campsites”.  I canNOT stop singing Chris Tomlin’s song, “Good, Good Father,” inside my own“SELF’S” mind, “JILL’S WORLD”.  🙂  🙂  And yes, my heart is smiling real, Real, REAL BIG as I will soon begin to ready my“SELF” for church on this Good, Good Evening…Sat., 8/20/16.

GO TEAM!!!  WE’RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER!!!

P.H.P., folks.  People Helping People.

Give the BEST of yourself for “JUST” today…”EVERY” day!!!

ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!!  AMEN.
