Who knew that you can get sunburn on a cold, cloudy day because you spent nine and a half hours in your church parking lot? Definitely not us!
There was a huge yard sale at our church, Redeeming Grace Church. Its purpose was to raise money for a mission trip to the Dominican Republic and, all in all, I think we met our goal. When it was all said and done we had raised over three thousand dollars! Everyone was praising the Lord for this profit.
My siblings and I had a lot of fun bonding with our friends as we set up and tore down the yard sale. From unpacking/packing boxes, directing traffic, to loading vehicles, there was plenty to do and we tried our best to help out. By the end of the day, we were tired but happy to hear that help was needed in “disposing” of the leftover hotdogs and sodas. I’m glad we were able to serve and can’t wait to hear how the mission trip to the DR went.
