This summer, sixty folks from our church will be heading to Eastern Kentucky and the hills of Appalachia. This is not a summer vacation. Rather, this trip is to deliver hope to families that greatly need assistance.
Each year, Grace Chapel take part in Appalachia Impact, in conjunction with Project Worth. Members of our community take time and resources from their summer activities to show others that they are loved. This year, will be no different.
This year, we have a few work sites that we will be working on around Menifee County, Kentucky. The photos in this post show the work sites and some of the projects that we will be bending our selves towards. In addition to the manual labor inherent with Appalachia Impact, there will be members of our community that take part in assisting Project Worth.
Project Worth is an educational program in Appalachia that assists kids with their math and reading skills. In addition to helping the youngsters out, Project Worth helps adults with a pantry of food and clothing. There is even a community garden, I understand!
So, while the summer heat is on in the middle of July, my wife Bianca, my two boyos and I will be swinging hammers and showing folks that there is more hope, grace and mercy than we can ever hope to exhaust.
