Appalachian Mission Trip 2012

20120729_appalachiaIt’s been a while since my last blog entry but I guess I was waiting for something worthy.  So here it is.

Nate and I had the pleasure to go on a week long mission trip with his youth group to Appalachia.  We went to a mission center in the town of Inez, Kentucky and worked on a home right in that city.

We went down with 8 kids and 2 adults and joined another group from Youngstown. We were the 2nd group in a matter of 2 weeks to totally refurbish a mobile home and got to finish it and turn it over to the home owner on Friday when we left.

Working on exterior siding, drywall, plumbing, electrical, painting and decking, the kids did a ton of the work with a little guidance from us.

Below is a slideshow with some video I put together which pretty much says the rest.  Enjoy!

Here is a photo gallery as well.
