It's summertime:'Go, mow and glow'

Living Faith Indy, a church plant in Indianapolis, loaded a trailer with a riding lawnmower and some push mowers, edgers, blowers and brooms.

They found a parking place for their trailer and began to go house to house, asking permission to mow each lawn—for free.
