I am packing up again for my church’s annual mission trip to Preston county West Virginia. I won’t have WiFi for the next week, so I won’t be putting up a post until I get back.
I spent yesterday and today charging batteries and sorting through my tools trying to narrow down what I would need.
Volunteers at our parish have done some good work over the past 20 years or so. This will be my fifth year. My older two teenagers are going with me again. We split into several groups and work to repair or improves homes in the area.
Last year, my group built a 40′ wheel chair ramp for a lady who hadn’t been out of her house in six months, due to being confined to a wheel chair.
We built a front porch and wheel chair ramp the year before as well.
It’s not all ramps, we repaired a roof, over a trailer that collapsed under 4′ of snow, back in 2011.
Coal sheds, small additions, replaced windows and doors, you name it.
Every year, we take a group of teens to help people out and make new friends. In a week or so, I should have a bunch of pictures and maybe a few stories to pass on.
