This Saturday we were able to accomplish two service projects: A return trip to the Ledford family and an outing to Project Chimps. At the Ledford's, we finished all the siding and kitchen cabinet replacement. The family now has a functional home to raise their family in. The Lord provided for the Ledford's, and God gets the glory!

Projects Chimp is a sanctuary for chimpanzees that have lived some or all of their lives in experimental science labs. They are given a home to live out the rest of their lives peacefully after having a difficult experience growing up in a research environment. Even though Project Chimps is quite large, the funding consistency over the years has been lacking, so we offered up our free labor to accomplish projects that spanned from trail clearing to building enrichment devices for the chimps. We were able to save them a lot of man hours by working there as well as sharing Christ in our efforts as a body of believers. We look forward to returning in the future.

This was the first project I (Doug Serra) had to miss due to a foot injury, and seeing the passion and execution of this group on these projects was incredibly encouraging to me. The Lord has blessed Vessel with hands such as these.

Thank you to our volunteers for their hard work and dedication to being on mission for Christ through the work of their hands.
