Ironmen Serving Church and Community
March 21, 2013

Thirty-two men served at the recent Ironmen Eat and Serve.  After enjoying a time of hearty breakfast and fellowship, the men headed out to serve in 12 projects.  Various projects included painting a house for Love INC, yard work, pressure washing, carpet replacement, drywall repair, window maintenance, and plumbing. 

Ransom Kent reflected upon the day with these words:  “I took part in two separate projects. First, I worked with a fellow Ironman to help a member of our church shape up some hedges in their back yard, as well as clean out some gutters and remove an unwanted plant.  On the second job I was part of a large team of Ironmen who were assisting Love INC with a LoveOP. We painted the front side of the home for one of Love INC's clients. " 

He greatly enjoyed working with his brothers in Christ to accomplish a task for the kingdom.  Ransom said that "Even stirring gravy to the Lord for the Ironmen breakfast is more enjoyable than just stirring gravy for gravy-stirring sake!" 

David Schatz mentioned, "It is cool to see men of all ages come together for the common goal of being Jesus to the body."  He was especially touched by how blessed the people are that are the recipients of the work.  David was amazed by how each time he became worried about an event detail, he prayed and God tangibly over-blessed the situation. 

Men, the next time you hear about an Ironmen event, make plans to attend.
