The shape of ministry has many faces. Fulfilling and applying indirect ministry roles, quietly and unanimously offers one’s gift in service to Christ Jesus who mediates on our behalf to GOD in Heaven. On August 1st and 8th, friends, and members of Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church, volunteered their hands, their possessions, and their time, to gather and reconstruct a used corn crib in support of The Potato Project. This experience was a major undertaking by volunteers who have had no such prior hands-on experience other than conversations and an internet video. Most directly, this involved the lending of 30 foot high scaffold borrowed from multiple sources, loaned necessary materials to enable the construction process, tools, donated stewardship funds, the property site, and most of all peoples dedicated volunteer time supersedingtheir allotment and family reservations. Together volunteers in their teen years through age 91 helped make this happen.
This IHartHarvest Corn Crib will be used for storage of harvested field corn under a number of circumstances. Most of which in aid to better sustained financial stewardship of The Potato Project. The Project, as you know, grows and provides donations of fresh food to hungry neighbors in need via local food pantries and the Greater Berks Food Bank. This, in fulfillment of Holy Scripture directives.
