A group from the Chesterland (Ohio) Community Church spent a day in Sonnenberg Village helping with projects in the Village. They were spending a week at the North Street Mission (Trinity Church) of Wooster doing mission work in Wooster. They wanted to spend a day in the Village working on projects and learning more about the Amish and Mennonite faith.
They helped load and then unload floor boards for the Bixler House and also worked in the gardens with our own volunteers. It was a beautiful day in so many ways and we were glad for the help.
They stayed on with us into the evening as we furnished pizza to thank them for their help. Before dinner, we had two people from the Kidron Community stop and discuss Mennonite history and beliefs and Amish history and beliefs.
The Chesterland group appreciated what we are doing in the Village as much as we appreciated their help.
