My church, Delaware Christian, worked around town over the weekend. We call it Impact Delaware, partnering with the Council for Older Adults and Common Ground Free Store Ministries.

Through the council, our volunteers were assigned to various senior citizens who need help with yard work: raking, mowing, weeding, mulching, window washing. While working, our teams also made an effort to chat with the people, and pray with them if they wanted. Though the chores make a difference for these folks, I believe the contct with friendly and caring people makes a bigger difference.

The weather was horrible: cold, drizzly and windy. But every team was working and serving with a smile.

I was assigned to photograph our teams at work. Here's one of my favorite photos: a dad and son working together.

                  And another dad and his children took a moment to pose with their new friends:

Our pastor, Al, and his family served lunch to clients at the free store.

And lots of other work went on there, too.

My friend Sarah. Always cheerful!

Hearts driving hands to make an impact ... it was a good weekend.
