PATIO STONE HELP NEEDED
We have just received a new request
3:40 pm edt
A person in Sprucedale needs
help to put down some patio stones to make the path way from the driveway to the ramp into his house a little bit wider. He
has the patio stones but neither he nor his wife are physically able to lay the stones. He uses a power wheelchair and his
wife has MS. Currently the pathway just barely accommodate the width of his wheelchair.
The family is on
ODSP so they have no extra money to pay someone to help them and don't have funding to help them out.

Wow! Thirteen people attended our first meeting and it was
9:21 am edt
Next Saturday we will be finishing the bedroom floors of a home
for someone then we go into a day of fun, swimming, climbing, watersports, challenges, food drink
and bonfire at Ken and Penny's home.
On Saturday SCG celebrate gathered in $420 for
buying wood towards the need of he elderly couple who cannot pay for their heating this winter. We havea way to
go yet, but it's a good start. We also have a potential of getting some more wood donated in exchange for some work.
Items that came up as points for discussion were helping with the Magnatewan fire disaster and helping some people in the
community who are not well enough to cut their wood with this work as well.
It was a great meeting and Romans
12:9-18 was taken as the key mission statement, this says
must be honest and true. Hate what is evil. Hold on to what is good. Love each other deeply. Honor others more than yourselves.
Never let the fire in your heart go out. Keep it alive. Serve the Lord.
When you hope, be joyful. When you suffer,
be patient. When you pray, be faithful. Share with God's people who are in need. Welcome others into your homes.
Bless those who hurt you. Bless
them, and do not call down curses on them. Be joyful with those who are joyful. Be sad with those who are sad. Agree with
each other. Don't be proud. Be willing to be a friend of people who aren't considered important. Don't think that you are
better than others.
back evil with evil. Be careful to do what everyone thinks is right. If possible, live in peace with everyone. Do that as
much as you can.
Great day, great work, great love!
