We had a huge, wonderful Volunteer Day this past Saturday…30 volunteers, 135 machines, a 16 foot truck, 4 giant pizzas and more smiles and love than one can convey on a page. We’ve received so many machines in recent months that we’ve had a hard time keeping up so I contacted those who’d shown an interest and asked if they’d be available. Can you come and help “sew in” machines??
The response was overwhelming. The church graciously offered a larger workspace and we were off and running. There were people working on machines, packing a shipment, packing the truck for the warehouse, inventorying, you name it. We had two gracious hostesses, welcoming volunteers as they arrived and helping them get settled.
I handed my camera to various people throughout the day and this morning I went through those pictures for the first time. There are so many I can’t even include them all in one posting. What I love is that they convey the mood of the day. People helping people, meeting and laughing together, puzzling over unusual machines, working to help one cause.
Take a look.
