Christian Appalachian Project: Kentucky Mission 2022

Thank you to the Christian Appalachian Project and our team of adult and youth volunteers who completed another successful mission trip to Eastern Kentucky.  This year, we worked on rebuilding a roof and putting in new flooring to make homes safer and dryer for the residents. It was a wonderful week of hard work and heavy lifting. Every day was filled with joy, gratitude, team-bonding, and faith affirmation.

Thank you to our team members: Dave Berry, The Rev. Heather Brannon, Lucy Edwards, Andrew Gart, Olivia Gart, Emily Olson, Laura Olson, Alex Perez, Kathy Stine, Barbara Westlake, and our fearless leader, Debbie Wright.
