Service Bingo

If you are looking for a fun service activity,
our Spanish Branch had a blast with this one.
That's right...Bingo of Love.
Or in other words:
Service Bingo.
We split into 3 teams.
Every team was suppose to get at least one bingo and the team to fill out the most squares won.
They also had to be back to the church by 8:00...which...in SMT (Standard Mormon Time) meant about 8:30 for one team.
Some of the squares included:
  • Take a bag of clothes to Deseret Industries.
  • Write your favorite scripture in a card for a missionary.
  • Pick up garbage for 10 minutes.
  • Pick up all the carts at grocery store.
  • Decorate cookies and take them to the assigned person.
  • Call the sisters that you visit that didn’t make it to the activity.
  • Pull weeds for 10 minutes.
  • Invite 5 people to English classes.
  • Wash the front windows of the church.
  • Take a case of water to the homeless center.
  • Wash 5 cars and leave a note.
This is the note they left.
  • In your group think of an activity that we can do as a community to serve others.
  • Write a note to someone close to you.
  • Fill out a family group sheet for family history.
  • Serve yourself to a rest. (because sometimes we are so busy serving others we forget about ourselves.)
  • Decorate a door at the assisted living center.
Who would have thought that we could do so much service in such a short amount of time!!

Everyone had a good time and left with some good stories of knocking doors to invite people to English classes...picking up a ton of carts at the grocery store...cleaning a whole park...and having a naked old man walking around at the old folks home.  Yep, definitely memorable.
