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.
