NEWS FROM MARCH 2018
We began March with a visit from a wonderful group of young people from Berean Christian School! They helped cook and clean, as well as organize inside of Ella’s Closet! We were so impressed with their willingness to serve the Lord through volunteering at the Lighthouse Cafe!
Not only did we get to share the month of March with Berean, but we also got to enjoy an amazing group of young adults from Howard University! These incredible students spent their spring break serving across the Glades communities, and two of those days were dedicated to us! Their visit was truly a blessing, and we welcome them back anytime!
Next, I had the privilege of being invited by Professor Carrie Thompson of the Palm Beach State College Belle Glade Campus to speak to her honors class about the mission of the Lighthouse Cafe and provide them with opportunities to volunteer! They are looking forward to coming to visit us soon!
This month, we have also been reminiscing about the wondrous transformation of our dining room by Christ Fellowship a year ago! We just cannot fathom how they turned our unattractive and dysfunctional dining room into a beautiful and convenient space! We are still truly amazed each and every day for this life-changing blessing, and we are so grateful for Christ Fellowship!
During the month of March, we served 898 breakfasts, 1,556 lunches, 946 sick/shut-in meals, 1,248 children’s snacks for The Life Center, and we have continued to help our people find the services that they need!
Each day, we are thankful that we can come to the Lighthouse Cafe and serve the Lord. As always, thank you for your ongoing support and generosity!
