Cornerstone Church of the Silicon Valley (San Jose) has been a partner and supporter of FIRM for many years. This month, they are the first team that will be hosted and they will be very busy with a full week of projects around the community! The team has worked on some side projects for the playground area including painting our newly constructed trash/recycle bins and building a large sandbox that will serve youth from the refugee community daily. The team also assisted the African gardeners with their harvest of tomatoes, kale, and corn that had produced huge yields and needed many hands to assist with the actual harvesting. This was particularly rewarding as this same team had helped with the early development of the African garden site last summer when they came! Lastly, they will run a Vacation Bible School for the children in the community that will have the theme of “The Lord Is My Shepherd” which will all culminate with a BBQ! We are so blessed to have them spend a week of their summer with us and cannot thank them enough for their partnership with FIRM!
