Annual Adopt-a-Block Barbecue 2012

We just had the most wonderful time this past Saturday May 19th have our annual Adopt-A-Block Barbecue.  It was so much fun. This year we cooked up 300 hamburgers, 200 hotdogs, as well as serving chips and soda.  We usually just invite the apartments we have adopted but this year we invited the homeless that live in the area as well.  Which is a great way to introduce ourselves because we will be adopting their area soon.  We are preparing a team to adopt a homeless section where every Saturday the will be going to their tents and "homes" to build relationships and meet a need. We are super excited about this expansion of Adopt-a-Block and we are calling it Adopt-a-Bridge.

The following are pictures that we took at the barbecue.
