Day one of work is complete for our Appalachia Service Project missionaries!
The day began in prayer with the full group of 30 joining together to ask for God's blessings on the day and week ahead. Our team had a full day of hard work, much of it in the rain. But that didn't stop them! Trip leaders especially noticed the younger missionaries really stepping up with great initiative, enthusiasm, and kindness.
The biggest takeaway from today's activities was the great connections that are being formed. The group felt a strong bond with the families that they are working with. The teams are also getting to work with some folks from the three other churches in Brenton this week. Some of our missionaries even met some furry friends and couldn't resist taking some photos!
After dinner, the team took some time to reflect on the first day and some got to unwind with some friendly card games.
Overall, the group is feeling very blessed to be there and they are looking forward to tomorrow's work day.
Thank you so much for your prayers for our team! Please keep praying and feel free to share words of encouragement for our travelers in the comments below.
