That was how our month in Elkin, North Carolina was. It just felt right.
First was our encounter with finding a perfect spot to park Earl (refer to blog post titled Apple Jack Wine). Next was our attending church at the small parish of Galloway Memorial.
After worship, during Coffee Hour, doors flew open. Another soon-to-be lifetime friend, Jane, told Lauré of a place that could use our extra hands. The ARK. A transitional housing program for homeless single women and families. Jane urged us to contact the director on Monday.
The Vicar, the Reverend Gaye Brown, shared insights and information about the community at large, and where the needs are most apparent. She invited us to an Interfaith Dinner to meet more people involved in ministry. She, too, urged us to stay in the area to serve and connect.
We felt so welcomed.
