Gleanings Summer 2008

Joshua & Valerie traveled with our church (HOFCC), to Dinuba, CA from August 23-31, 2008, to volunteer at "YWAM Gleanings for the Hungry". Here are some pictures & brief testimonies of their trip...

Their day started at 6:30 AM, they ate breakfast, had devotions & were working by 8:00AM. They had breaks & lunch, and finished working at 4:30 PM. In the evening, they had dinner, another devotional time & freetime until bedtime at 10:00 PM.

The team of 77, processed 7,660 trays of fruit which is 809,000 pounds of wet fruit, which translates to 57,560 pounds of dried fruit! Which means that the team that YOU sent to Gleanings has sent 28 tons of food to hungry people everywhere. That is more than ay HOFCC team has ever before processed in a week!


Both Joshua & Valerie were tested during their time at Gleanings thru illness, loneliness, heat, sunburn, homesickness, etc. They both enjoyed the hard work & serving. They met LOTS of new friends. But most of all, this experience helped them to grow closer to Jesus. They both cannot wait to go back!



**Fun in the pool - a much refreshing treat, since the temp was around 100 degress the whole week!!**

Fire by the road on their drive home!!
