Let me introduce you to Team Josh/Bob…
It consisted of families from our couples bible study that meets on Sundays. Josh/Bob isn’t in our group but he was our team leader. Cause, you know, he is big in the church now and all. He’s come a long way since he was in our youth group all them years ago. I must say I am very proud of him and all that he has been able to do by the grace of God.
This was our team for this installment of Servolution. That is the all out serve fest that our church does every so often just to reach out to the community and do random acts of service and share the gospel. That is Josh/Bob on the far right. His name is Josh but we call him Bob. Why? Something about Full House and ferrets but that is a story for another day. What is important is that Team Josh/Bob did a great job washing cars and handing out information to all the grateful people at Burger King.
Our car wash was just one of many that happened around the world. Yes, that’s right. Servolution went international. It crossed borders. People are catching on they are starting to get in the groove of serving the “one” to change the world. A couple hundred churches from around the globe participated alongside HPC to serve their community. That is just so awesome to me!
And of course, in true HPC style, the entire event was recorded in real time via Twitter, Twitpic, random blogs, and Facebook. All of the church’s from around the world that participated kept us updated as to how their outreach was going. In fact “servolution” was in the Twitter top 20 searches right up there with “economy,” “Obama,” and “Easter.” Imagine that!
There were trips to the nursing home to play games; outreaches for women to get their nails done or to have a massage; a dental truck that gives free dental care; an outreach to the dog park to hand out doggy treats and water to their owners; chicken sandwiches and water handed out in the parking lot when the clubs closed; houses were painted; entire blocks were cleaned up; schools were given maintenance; cars were washed; people were fed and clothed; on and on and on.
Get that truck clean boys! Woo Hoo!
