Day of Service

Abigail recently had the chance to help out the people of Alaska.  Our local food bank does a lot more than just serve the people of Fairbanks.  They have services, classes and such all week and on the weekends they pack boxes and ship them out to the villages to those who need food but don't have a road to come to town.
This was her first service project and we were not just sure how she would do since it was also a 3 1/2 hour commitment of work.  But she and her dada decided to give it a try and you know what, she did great.  She and Josh were incharge of putting in big boxes of cereal boxes into the boxes for the villages.
Lucky for Abigail, one of her friends from church, and older and much wiser 5 year old, was also helping out that day and was able to show Abigail the ropes.  As she grows I love to see all the different opportunities she will be able to discover.  Her day of service was one where all I think she learned was that it was fun to be with people she knows doing something fun at the food bank but for now that is all we need.

It's never too early to start thinking of others and learning how to CARE!!! We live in a very selfish culture and caring needs to be taught at home. Good job, J and K.
