I got a persuasive text message yesterday afternoon:
"Church dairy downtown, 1:00-5:00. How men everywhere. Shirtless hot men. You bottle milk with them...the hot men."
So I agreed to go.

It wasn't at all like the sales pitch. We gathered at a warehouse where we cut and packaged 1 lb blocks of cheddar cheese. There were no "hot men" and the average men who were there, were wearing heavy sweatshirts as we were working in a refrigerated storage room.

But! It was a pleasure to serve. Everyone was kind and friendly and it felt good to contribute to society somehow.

The LDS church does so much in terms of Humanitarian work and I am grateful to have the opportunity to be a small part of the large work they do!
