Kirk of the Hills’ Women’s Group Prepares Dinner for St. Louis Residents

This past week, a group of 8 ladies from Kirk of the Hills Presbyterian Church in Ladue, Missouri came to volunteer their time by making dinner and helping facilitate art night at the St. Louis home. Last year, Tammy Woodward connected with Mercy Ministries through the Afternoon of Mercy Luncheon in St. Louis, and later brought her church bible study group for a tour of the home. The ladies immediately wanted to do something special for the residents. Not only did they make a Mexican style fajita feast, but they also brought Mississippi Mud Cakes for dessert, made by a group of 11th grade girls from their church.



For the residents, having someone else make dinner is significant because the dinner preparation team gets to take a break from their daily routine. These residents could have had the night off, but chose to assist the visitors and help them find their way around the kitchen. Residents enjoy spending time with volunteers from the community and greatly appreciate all the generosity they receive.


Here is what a few of the residents had to say about their visit from the ladies of Kirk of the Hills:

Teresa said, “Last night was so much fun! I felt so blessed that the ladies came and cooked for us! They did a great job and the food was amazing. Thank you to all the ladies who took time out to visit with us. They did a wonderful job!”

Tasha said, “Having the women from Kirk of the Hills cook dinner was great and the Mud Pie was awesome!”

Paula said, “Dinner was so good. I’m so glad they gave up their time to spend it with us.”
