Even though we have been doing this now for 4 years on the first block and into our second year on the second block, we still run into people who are new and shocked by what we do. This past week we had a guy who fell into that category. He just couldn’t believe that we were willing to mow his lawn and help him out for free. Seeing the look on those people’s faces never gets old.
As I have said before, this summer has been the summer of mowing lawns. We now have three mowers at the church and they are definitely getting used well! Each week we spend most of our time connecting with people and mowing their lawns and this week was no exception. The three mowers have enabled us to gets a lot of lawn covered in a short amount of time (even when we only have a few volunteers out).
We are having a great summer so far with Adopt-a-Block. When was the last time you made it out to Adopt-a-Block? Why not come out once this summer before the summer is over? Or even better yet, sign up to come out once a month! Just reply in the comments below if you want more information.
