Neighborhood Workday January 18
Hello, IIAW Friends,
Do you realize IIAW Volunteers have been out every month since last July, showing the LOVE of Jesus in our precious community! Two days we worked two locations at the same time.
January 18th is the 3rd Saturday of the month, and our first Neighborhood Clean Up Day of 2020 and the new decade!
We will meet at the Unity Center, at 8:00 a.m., 803 W. 23rd Street.
We're teaming up with TEAM JESUS for a short time of prayer, a potluck breakfast, and then organize our teams. A few volunteers are needed to help fix hot and cold meals for the Beloveds. This should last till about 10:30 a.m.
The rest of us will work both sides of 23rd Street from the RR overpass just east of Crysler and on east to Noland Road, doing trash pick up, raking, sweeping, and weed whacking along the curbs. Be sure to wear your green IIAW T-shirts. The equipment you need are grabbers, push brooms, rakes, dust pans, weed whackers, loppers, and plastic bags. Dress in warm layers with hats, gloves, scarves and sturdy shoes or boots. We can use trucks for hauling brush and debris. Please pray for favorable weather and melted snow. We will shoot for 2 hours work time. Weather will dictate.
Winter work details are for hale and hearty ones. The weather may be too cold and windy for some workers, so use wisdom in your decision to participate. If the temperature is under 40 degrees, we will shorten the time we are on the street or decide not to venture out. Regardless, we will still meet for prayers and breakfast together to stay connected and growing our friendships.
The Christmas Luminaria lighting, December 21st on S. Main Street was incredible! Thank you, Brother Cato, Bishop Vaka, and the Independence Stake Youth for your tremendous support. Sixty-five youth and leaders, that's right, 65 showed up to assemble candles and bags and set them out on a beautiful day. I am praying for another day like that day and a similar number turn out for this Neighborhood Clean Up Event on the 18th.
Reminder: General IIAW meeting is Tuesday, January 28th, 6:30 p.m. at the Unity Center.
Your servant in Christ Jesus,
IIAW Communications Secretary
