God’s Work, Our Hands Report: Thank you to all who helped with our God’s Work, Our Hands weekend activities! Our mobile pantry on Saturday served 467 people in 124 family groups. Isn’t that amazing! We served seniors, working adults, veterans, and parents with small children. Mac Park is surely making a difference in our neighborhood. Thank you to you all for your work on Sunday to tie LWR quilts, make floral arrangements and deliver to Alamo Heights Health and Rehab Center, refurbish the school playground, write Christmas cards for wounded warriors, knit prayer shawls, check blood pressure, service autos, pledge to vote, clean up our neighborhood, serve food, and donate nonperishable items to Place of Grace. We hope to be able to offer another mobile pantry in November.
