One Greenwood missionary group has a solitary goal, to help others come closer to Christ.
They are meeting that goal one property, one person, at a time. The Missionaries from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints have extended a helping hand to anyone who needs yard work done.
“We can do anything outside,” shared Jessica Applegate. “Including lawn mowing, weed eating, planting flowers, and raking leaves!”
And, they are doing it as a free service. Applegate stated they do not want pay or any donations for their efforts. Many throughout the community are taking advantage of the offer, too. Elderly, disabled, and those who just need an extra hand. They are grateful to the missionaries for their work.
“We started a while ago; service has been an integral part of our church since it was restored in 1830,” added Applegate. That work, according to Applegate, has no end.
Then said I, Lord, how long? And he answered, Until the cities be wasted without inhabitant, and the houses without man, and the land be utterly desolate, -Isaiah 6:11 KJV
