undeSERVEd Part Deux!

Team all geared up to serve the Memphis community

Here is Dr. Chitwood’s service team, they are all geared up to start hitting the streets and helping the needy.  They can’t contain their excitement!

They're so excited, they just can't hide it!

To prepare their hearts and minds for the task of serving in various parks, hospitals, non-profits, churches and retirement homes, the young adults spent time each morning in devotionals meditating on how God’s Word can impact their lives so that they can impact other people’s lives.

Dr. Chitwood’s team had the opportunity to serve at the non-profit organization, Bibles for China.  They were able to assist the organization with cleanup of the facilities.  This was a large blessing to the organization because so much of their focus is placed on their mission of sending Bibles in Mandarin/Cantonese to China, a country notorious for being opposed to their citizens  embrace of Christianity and religion in general.

Another area that this team served was in a local retirement home.  Here the youth were able to entertain the residents with sing-a-longs and exercise routines.  This allowed the staff to catch up on paperwork and other overdue projects.  The residents seemed to really enjoy the blast from the past with some of their favorite old songs!

And of course… there is ALWAYS dentistry to be done!

Who needs an office anyway!

At the end of the week, the youth were exhausted (and so were the adults!) but they were so blessed to have been given this opportunity to reach out to the areas of need in the Memphis community.  Many people felt the love of God through the service of His Church as they answered the call to serve!
