Hands of Hope Project!

Thank you to all who worked on scraping and painting Sandi Edmonds home. We especially thank Donna Hurd for her leadership in the project, Chris Brewer for his dedication to his mother and his patience and kindness to all of us as he worked so hard in countless ways and handled it all with a smile, and to Sandi, who made two wonderful meals for the workers. Your home looks great and we were glad to help!

If any of our church family have projects to do in the future, please contact Donna Hurd.
