Days for Girls Word Day in Yakima

2017-1-28-dfg-yakima-13Many missionaries came to help at our Yakima Days for Girls Event today.  We had a great time and we got so much work done!  If you have not yet learned about Days for Girls, please go take a look at  http://www.daysforgirls.org/

This is a fantastic non-profit organization that was started here in Washington by an LDS mom named Celeste Mergens.  For 3 or more years, before coming on this mission a year and a half ago, I did Days for Girls work full time.  It’s good.  It’s the best non-profit I’ve ever worked with.  It’s been a joy to introduce it here throughout the mission.  Our Sister missionaries LOVE helping with this service project!  Many of them are eager to go home and get things started after their missions.  I hope they do!

Women from many community groups and churches joined us today to help.  What a great place to make friends with the good women of Yakima.  We’re so grateful so many came to help.  This will be a huge blessing to the girls who will receive these kits.

Come take a look at what our day looked like.  There are more photos on our Days for Girls Yakima Team facebook page.
