Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Day of Service

Published: Thursday, May 30, 2013 at 11:34 AM.

The DeFuniak Springs ward helped two families, an invalid on a breathing machine and an elderly couple by cutting their grass and pruning shrubs in their yard, trimming branches and cleaning debris on 10 acres of pecan trees. Mrs. Peebles, the wife and sole caretaker, literally works 24/7 to care for her husband. Her gratitude was heartfelt that so many would do so much for her family.

The DeFuniak Springs group of 20 also cleaned tombstones in Magnolia Cemetery and disposed of old artificial flowers and debris there.  The ward has set aside every third Saturday as a day of service to continue beautifying their city by planting flowers in jardinieres downtown and sprucing up family cemeteries as well.
