Summer Missions: Helping at Children of the Nations headquarters

Temple’s crew of college students in Silverdale, Wash., had a busy day yesterday. Daniel Barnes posted on the group’s Facebook page that the students worked from 10 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. using a Weedeater and building steps into the side of a hill at Children of the Nations headquarters. “Lots of work done and lots more to do,” he added. “Great things ahead of us!”

COTN’s website reports that the group is “[p]artnering with nationals to provide holistic, Christ-centered care for orphaned and destitute children, enabling them to create positive and lasting change in their nations.” Its areas of service include Dominican Republic, Haiti, Liberia, Malawi, Sierra Leone and Uganda.

Hard-working college students need fortification. What better source of fuel could they find than pizza?
