Jason Strickland said 74 students and 28 adults participated this year, doing general yard work and other odd jobs and performing “Random Acts of Kindness,” including washing more than 100 vehicles at free car washes, handing out more than 100 bottles of water at homes and construction sites and washing windows for customers at Hancock’s Neighborhood Market and Food Giant.
“Our mission has always been to provide students an opportunity to show the love of Jesus through local mission projects,” said Strickland. “Our theme this year, ‘Live Love’ was based on I John 3:18, ‘Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.’ We wanted to challenge students to move from merely talking about love to living out the Gospel everyday.”
Household chores performed include building a wheelchair ramp for Jack Stewart, a disabled veteran; repairing porches and gutters, doing landscaping projects around the new soccer bathrooms at the Trigg County Recreation Complex and building a storage shed at The Way, the local Christian youth center, said Strickland.
