Do Something Southeast San Diego Community Project

Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others. –Philippians 2:3-4

I am reminded of how our hearts should be like when we’re out serving others after reading this verse. Last Saturday, I had the privileged to witness the work of one of three sites that the Rock Church committed to serve for the Do Something Community Project.  Coming out at the Camino Del Sol site, I was blessed that among the believers serving the community, not one person grumbled about the work they were doing. In fact, they were all smiling! From the youngest to the old, each one carried a smile, a smile that was evidence that we serve a kind, loving, and awesome God. If you haven’t done any of these outreaches yet, I encourage you do Do Something when an opportunity comes up again!

Here are a few that had something to say about their experience at the Camino Del Sol site:

Giving a place a fresh coat of paint is always nice. It’s also nice to see people gather together and Do Something! Someone has to take the initiative, or else people end up becoming complacent and won’t see the need around them. One reason why my husband and I got married was because we shared the same interest in doing community projects around the community. There is always something to do when we make ourselves available to do it. -Amy Todorovich

The experience here at the Camino Del Sol cleaning site was a huge blessing. We picked up bagfuls of trash, and it’s nice to be able to fellowship among believers and get to know new believers here at The Rock through these outreaches. -Lori Faley, mother of a senior daughter at The Rock Academy

I painted inside the recreation and it was a lot of fun!! It’s always a neat experience to meet people you haven’t met before and having your time with God while helping others. -Tracey Olson, mother of a junior daughter at the Rock Academy

Going to the Rock Church for 6 years now, it meant a lot to us when the Rock decided to Do Something here at the southeast community. We live only 5 minutes away from this recreation center and we come walking here a lot, so it’s nice to help make a difference and beautify this center. Serving with believers out here and blessing others with what the Lord has blessed us with already is always a privilege and a blessing. And it’s good to always do it in love. -Kia Lee and Dao Vang, husband and wife

I felt good helping the community with my mom and sister! Joey Flack, 9 years old

I bring my son, Julius, here and his friends for tennis classes while I exercise around the golf field. Coming here today, I was surprise to find a clean, neat, and new tennis court!! We spend our Saturdays here a lot and it’s nice to see a difference this church has brought here in this community. -Virginia Santos Johnson, resident of the Camino Del Sol community
