Youth Mission Trip blog #2

Short and sweet for day 2: We spent the morning assembling bags of groceries for needy seniors at Old St. Mary’s catholic church in the financial district. Groceries for Seniors distributes food to roughly 1250 seniors each week, year round, with exactly 2 employees. Everything else is volunteers. It is amazing and we are grateful for all who care for the seniors who are out of sight and too often out of mind.

We spent the afternoon at the after school care program operated by Bay Area Rescue Mission in Richmond. The violence and pain in Richmond are readily apparent, but so are the energy and love invested by so many adults in the community’s children.

Please pray for the people we have served, their communities, and for us. Thank you. We are thinking of you all.
