Being BOLD in West Virginia July 28-August 3
Serving, worshiping, deepening their spirituality and strengthening their relationships were: Elizabeth Cooke, David Hansen, Nate Ladd, Julia Laurx, Erin Lee, Kari Lee, Nathan Lee, Jacki Riek, Emma Rogers, Lisa Rogers, Maya Valdez, Sidney Valdez and Amy Vincent. Working again with Nest Step Missions, it was an uplifting return visit to Clendenin YAY, GOD!
Our youth worked hard laying a floating floor in the home of Miss Linda. Each person found their niche during the project — whether it was measuring, cutting, connecting the floor, or nailing in trim. By the end of the week, two rooms had been completed! We loved getting to know Miss Linda and her dog Izzy.
Each evening we worshipped with the groups from New Jersey, Michigan, and another group from Illinois (Lincolnshire). This summer’s theme was BEYOND THE SHADOWS — using Plato’s Allegory of the Cave to illustrate how we can sometimes fail to see the light through the shadows.
Our last day at Adventures on the Gorge was a fun outing for zip lining, white water rafting. or enjoying a water park. We ended the trip with a festive community gathering at the little league field (same one that our group put the tin roof on in 2016).
The Children’s Sunday School volunteered in our Clothing Center on March 17. They helped fold, sort, and hang up donated clothes to be ready for our Clothing Center guests.
