Appalachia Service Project - Trip Update

Today was another great day for our teams. They continued the projects they started and continued to develop relationships with each other and with the families.

Some of our missionaries took on the important task of cleaning the ASP center. Then everyone enjoyed lunch in Pineville, West Virginia, the nearest town.

Tomorrow, they will make their journey back to Maryland. We pray that their spirits stay high as they complete their mission.

Thank you for your continued support. Please leave a message for the team in the comments.

Appalachia Service Project - Trip Update

Today, our ASP missionaries got right back to work and were blessed with sunny skies!

Teams led by Matt and Steve S. finished siding the tiny house just before 7pm. The great niece of the home owner came by to check out their work.

Teams led by Barb and Steve handled some indoor and outdoor tasks including flooring, sparkling, painting, and drywall.

The teams are tired but uplifted by all the wonderful things they have already accomplished. They relaxed this evening with dinner, fellowship, and time to reflect on the day's work.

Let's keep praying that God keeps our missionaries strong and energetic as they continue their tasks.

Appalachia Service Project - Trip Update

Our ASP missionaries did a lot of hard work today!

The large group split into teams and tackled such tasks as roofing, painting, drywall, and flooring. The teams led by Matt and Steve S. worked on siding a new "tiny house" for an 86-year old man. They hope to finish tomorrow.

The teams also spent the day meeting and beginning to build relationships with the families they are assisting this week.

This day ended with dinner and fellowship. Our missionaries had a great time getting to know one of the families as well as members of another church group from Raleigh, North Carolina. And some team members got to spend time with a really cute baby. All in a day's work!

The team had a tiring but successful first day and are looking forward to continuing their projects tomorrow.

Thank you so much for your prayers for our team! Please keep praying and feel free to share words of encouragement in the comments below.

Appalachia Service Project - Trip Update

Our Appalachia Service Project missionaries left bright and early this morning from the Nativity parking lot to make their way to Brenton, West Virginia. They were sent off with enthusiastic prayers and hugs from loved ones. Our travelers will spend the week building relationships with families in the community and assisting with construction projects.

We are sending them prayers for a safe journey today and hope that they get to rest tonight in preparation for the hard work ahead.
