'Go Ye Therefore' and make a difference

A group of local youth are going forth and making a difference by spreading the love of Christ in the community. The youth joined together from several area churches under the name "Go Ye Therefore."

They held a car wash in the Pete's County Market parking lot in Alexandria on Saturday, July 6 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. It wasn't a typical car wash, however. Instead of charging for a car wash, the youth gave people $1 for the opportunity to wash their car and to pray for them.

The youth held a similar event last fall and are hoping to do another one later this summer. About $65 in $1 bills were given out at the recent event.

The youth have also volunteered with Love INC, have helped people move, served food at homeless shelters, gone door-to-door to pray with people, parked cars and they spend time together participating in various fun activities.
