Appalachia Service Project - Trip Update

It was another day of hard, physical labor as our ASP team continued to work on the projects they began earlier in the week. One homeowner was so excited about his new staircase, the team caught him hugging it!

Another highlight of the day was a picnic where the families joined our missionaries for food and fellowship. The group enjoyed burgers, hot dogs, and sides. After eating, everyone went to a nearby park that had playground equipment, horseshoes, and plenty of space for frisbee, football, and basketball. Team members of all ages had fun running around with the little children of the families we are working with.

This time to spend with one another brought the whole group closer as they realized just how NOT different we all really are. One of our missionaries, Michele, noted, "we are all just blessed and burdened in different ways."

The team is thrilled with all the love, support, and prayers we have been sending from home. Please continue to keep this amazing group in your prayers. Leave them a note below to let them know we are still praying for them and how very proud we are of what they have already accomplished!
