Just Serve with Ventura Stake

Saturday was the day for service for the America West and Northwest areas.
Since we live in the Ventura Stake we chose to do service with them.  They had provided two service projects -- clean up the equestrian center in Fillmore and upgrading the outside of the little school in Santa Paula.
The missionaries were invited to participate.

This table was about 12 feet long.  Our task was to scrape off all of the beige paint, sand the table, prime it, and paint it.  We found out that it makes the job much easier when one has the proper tools.  President and Sister Felix did not have the right tools and took much more time than another person who found a better tool.  It was great working together though.

Hermana Hurley has so much energy!  She would run with the wheelbarrow to empty it and run back.

The mound of wood chips seemed like it would never get smaller.  This was used on the play ground.
President Felix felt it was faster scooping than shoveling.  Elder Robinson, Elder Deem, and Elder Garrard

After working the stake provided hamburgers or hot dogs, chips, watermelon, a cookie, and lemonade.  These pictures are of missionaries who helped at the equestrian center.  Bottom left:  Elder Simpson, Elder Law, Elder Barlow, and Elder Sorensen
