From Carol Proctor: Fifteen Arborlawn members had a wonderful and productive mission trip to UMCOR Sager Brown in Baldwin, Louisiana last week. We inspected, assembled and packed baby layette kits and sewing kits; trimmed bushes around the facility; installed bumper rails and shelves in a storage building; and worked in the community repairing homes.
We enjoyed fellowship with Christians from around the country and worshipped with them. Our group also had a lot of fun playing games in the evening, and we had some wonderful meals. We took a very pleasant visit to the beautiful Rip Van Winkle house and gardens on our afternoon off. God truly blessed our trip!
It is also important to mention that, after some hard campaigning, Libby Patterson - who ran unopposed - was elected as Miss UMCOR Sager Brown. She is surely the first person (and probably the last) to hold that title. Libby is still enjoying being “queen,” so congratulate her when you get a chance!
