I am always on the look out for service projects. Wendy Malpage from the Randburg ward has found a series of pre-schools to help with. I am making the effort to see what she is engaged in so I can involve missionaries where appropriate.
Today I met her in Alexandra township and participated in a painting project.
She identified this school and the needs and brought some friends to day to help paint the exterior with bright colors.
I loved getting to paint the big blue heart!
Here are the wonderful teachers, who also have their own children.
|Here they are together.|
Speaking of the children, look what I found inside!
Over 20 little 4-5 year olds. They were all being so quiet and well behaved. It was amazing.
These two brothers did a great job painting the name of the pre-school on the outside. Their mom Sandy brought them here today- but they have been involved with service projects with their school. I was delighted to meet them and be able to tell them more about our missionarues and the service they render.
|As I drove away I was impressed by the efforts of these few people today- caring about others and do something they can do. I hope to get more missionaries invovled in community projects throughout the year- not just on an annual helping hands day!|
