This will be Gordon's third year experiencing the diverse ethnicities and socio-economic groups within Reading, Pennsylvania. We will think critically about the challenges of redemption and what it means to serve with a kingdom perspective, while learning to love God and others through teamwork, prepared hearts, and prayer. We hope to spread Christ's love in serving, establishing long-term relationships and learning from this urban community.
We hope to continue serving and working with Neighborhood Housing Services and other organizations in whatever ways possible. In the past we have served in a variety of ways; both in practical ways and in building relationships between people and organizations in the city. We anticipate working with people in after school children's programs and a homeless shelter. Also, depending on the weather, cleaning up and preparing neighborhood gardens for the spring season are ways in which we plan to help out.
