20140727 missiontripFor the 3rd straight year I was blessed enough to be able to go on the mission trip with St Joan of Arc's youth group (C.H.A.O.S) to the Appalacian region.  Our destination this year was Cumberland, Kentucky where they have a great base of operations that can reach out to ALOT of needy people.

With a van full of a dozen, 8 kids and 4 adults, we had a blast working and playing over the last week. It was great to have both boys with me this year.

Some of this weeks activities were; rebuilding a porch, painting a deck, rebuilding deck stairs, replacing a storm door, resealing a trailer roof, building benches, replacing a gutter, painting a pavilion & revitalizing a statue of Mary.

Free-time included frisbee, cards, swimming, hiking, coal-mining museum and mine-tour just to name a few.

Below is a slideshow/video with several of the highlights.
