Thank you to all 12 of you who came out and helped with the soup kitchen and vacation bible school in Asbury Park! What a ministry to assist that church in their ministry, and I know each one of you felt blessed by being there, getting back more than you give. From butterflies and banners to guitar songs to preparing dishes without recipes to frosting cupcakes and stirring sauce, you were awesome!
