Middle-school students from TMI spent a weekend in service Oct. 21-23 at Austin’s Community First Village, a program that aims to provide permanent housing for the chronically homeless in a tiny-home and mobile-home community on the city’s East Side.
As a project of TMI’s chapter of Interact, the Rotary-sponsored youth community-service organization, 21 TMI students and four faculty members helped with breakfast preparation, soap making, staining and painting and window washing.
The TMI group also enjoyed fellowship with the residents and considered the weekend’s theme from Genesis 12:2, where God tells Abraham that he will bless him so Abraham can be a blessing to the whole world. Participants in this “minimission” trip focused on counting their blessings and finding ways to bless others.
The mission of TMI is to provide an excellent educational community, with values based on the teachings of Jesus Christ, challenging motivated students to develop their full potential in service and leadership.
