Love Long Island Day 3

Today we went to Farmingdale to work at Hope For The Future - a ministry which works with street people and those in need. We arrived an hour before they opened, so we contacted God4Me Christian bookstore which is just around the corner and offered to come over and serve there instead of just sitting around. Our students folded clothes, broke down boxes, and did some organizing. To thank us, the bookstore gave each of our team members a CD by Lincoln Brewster (who's really awesome by the way!). We then went to Hope For The Future where Pastor Diane Dunn gave us an orientation and told us about the ministry, then got us to work in the warehouse. We unloaded a food truck, sorted the food, and organized it. After a brief break for lunch we put together bags of food which were distributed this evening to those in need. It was a fantastic day. Our kids worked hard and were inspired by Pastor Diane and her passion for Jesus and loving His people. So proud of our students! See all the pics here.
