Appalachian Mission Trip 2013

20130729 missiontripFor the second year in a row I had the pleasure to go on a week long mission trip with the St Joan of Arc youth group (C.H.A.O.S.) to the Appalachia region.  We worked out of London, Kentucky and visited St. Stephens in Cumberland, KY which will likely be our new destination in years to come. There were 60 more missionaries completely remodeling a house and a church in Cumberland.

We went down with 7 kids and 3 adults and worked hard and played hard all week.

The kids did several things last week such as painting the exterior of a house, hung new gutters, replaced; doors, toilet, sink, hot water heater, resealed a roof and worked at a food pantry.

Some of the highlights in our off-time were; swimming, visiting a coal mining museum, hiking to water falls in the middle of the forest and eating dinner the original Kentucky Fried Chicken.

Here’s is a photo gallery of some of the highlights.
