crossroads academy and the police athletic league. i went with some friends to PAL.
we had over 150 people show up to PAL alone to help serve. it was amazing to see. we did simple things like cleaning, organizing, and painting, along with more labor intensive things like build benches, help build a garden, and removing debris. it was so great to see all these people from different areas of kansas city coming together for people we may not ever meet. i helped paint some of the gym walls. it may not seem like much, but i know for PAL it meant a lot. we finished all of our tasks two hours ahead of time. they had said what has taken them a long time to get to, we were able to finish in about four hours. so awesome that we were able to help them in such a big way.
as you can maybe tell, sean and i get kinda dirty when we paint. thanks hilary for taking the fun picture!
i have to confess...all of these pictures were taken from my pastors facebook album.
