Last month, a group of high school students from Catholica Heart Workcamp (@took a road trip to Wichita to help serve in any way that was needed. These students willingly devoted a week of their summer to go improve our community. I was amazed to be on the receiving end of their dedication. They came and hedged the fence line in our backyard, repainted a severely faded shed, cut the grass, fixed siding and painted my entire house.
These are all things I have desired to have done for a long time but due to lack of money have been unable. These students worked together with smiles and a commitment to lend a helping hand in the name of Jesus Christ.
It was a blessing to meet and sit with them. We were able to discuss what their experience has been like, why they recommit each year and their future aspirations. We prayed, listened to praise and worship music and all together extended our family in Christ.
All of these young people have great futures ahead of them and I pray for wisdom, love and protection encompass them on their journey. Thank you to them all for all of their hard work.
