In June, a team from Portland traveled to the cemetery to help with repairs and improvements on the new ministry center there. The building had previously been used as a cemetery brothel. A lot of progress was made on the house and even more exciting was the laughter and life that filled it as the cemetery community and Portland team worked side by side.
We are also celebrating the accomplishments of our first scholarship recipient. She recently completed 7th grade as student body vice president of her middle school and is an honor student who enjoys singing, dancing, and theater. She is a leader and inspiration in the cemetery community and devotes hours every week to tutoring younger children in the ministry center.
She is determined and delightful. She is our hero.
Thank you for your involvement and support of the beautiful things God is doing in Yellow Flower Cemetery. Indeed, it takes all of us.
