This week I had the chance to get to know the Swift twins really well as we served at 2 of our local shelters. On Thursday we had the chance to work at the Women’s Emergency Shelter where women and children in abusive situations can stay for up to a month as they work out their home lives. We moved donations out of the basement and washed windows-the shelter coordinator was awesome and invited us back. They get some state funding but to keep up their building it takes hundreds of volunteer hours! We took the afternoon off and went on an adventure around the Tippecanoe Battlefield and then stayed up way too late watching Mama Mia:) We got up at 4:30am the next morning, picked up the Mann twins, and made our way to Lafayette Urban Ministry where we made a pancake breakfast for the homeless guests. It was awesome-we made sausage and 3 kids of pancakes including chocolate chip!! One of the guests shared that they hadn’t had a breakfast of more than a granola bar in over a year, it was heart-breaking but totally made getting out of bed early worth it. We topped off the morning with breakfast at Christos and then all went home to catch a little more sleep before everyone else at home woke up. The kids sacrificed Spring Break time to help others and were more than willing-no one made them-they were fantastic examples of Christ’s hands and feet!!!
