9 AM Start @ The Highland Campus!

Wow! Today was absolutely incredible! I have never seen anything like it & I am SO PROUD to be a part of something so awesome... Today was HPC's 1st (annual?) SERVOLUTION. Basically, about 600 volunteers of all ages -- and all in RED SERVE SHIRTS -- took to the streets of Baton Rouge to show God's love for the people. There were teams of people giving out water, free car washes, home repairs, trash/litter pick-up, and SO much more! There were red shirts all over this RED STICK town! Carole and I went down to the inner city for the HUGE block party near Gus Young Park. We had an amazing turn-out. There was free food (hamburgers, hot dogs, and Popeye's Fried Chicken), games (basketball, slip-n-slide, jump rope, space walks) and more...Healing Place Church sent out our Mobile Medical Clinic and our Mobile Dental Clinic to do FREE blood pressure checks and glucose screenings. Free teeth cleaning was available for all children. We pampered the ladies with complimentary hand massages and manicures while the kids got their faces painted and were given books to take home. Everyone received a bag of groceries at the end of the day.
This was a truly awesome experience and I'm glad I got to take part! Check out my pictures from SERVOLUTION 2007!:
