Saturday Morning we woke up early, had breakfast and headed towards the gym at the Dream Center for a big prayer meeting; it was great and after Caleb was asked to dance which was actually pretty funny but I'll show that video later. After the meeting everyone divided into teams and we headed out to different areas in LA to bless the community. 

The outreach is called adopt-a-block and every week hundreds of people go out and knock on people's doors asking them if there is a way they can bless them. It's amazing. There is a variation of it which consists of putting all the things they have been donated in groups (food, medicine, toiletries, household items, etc) and giving it to people as they come and go through the different sections.

We were a part of the second type of adopt-a-block. Caleb was organizing the lines of people waiting to go through, Jennifer and Marissa were helping in the food areas, Tranica helped with the toilettries and I was helping with the medicine since the vast majority doesn't speak English and we wanted to make sure they got the medicine they needed and they knew how to take it.

We were there for about 4 hours and handed out hundreds and hundreds of different goods; it was a great experience. We learned a lot for our First Sunday Ministry, so we'll see some modifications to First Sunday this year.

We were honored we got to be a part of adopt-a-block and learn so much from it, we are now excited to see how First Sunday becomes so much better from what we learned in LA
