Exciting news! We are planning a spring break mission trip to Waverly, TN to help with recovery from the devastating flash floods they had there. It will be three days during the second week of our break: Monday through Wednesday, March 28 - 30. All students in 8th through 12th grades are welcome!
To help you get an idea of what these folks have been dealing with, this video shows surveillance footing from someone's house; at the beginning there's just a few puddles in the yard, and 8 1/2 minutes later, the water is deep enough for a truck to go floating by and knock a house off its foundation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mv5LtkXBdso&t=9s
This one shows some of the debris and destruction left behind: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hr29OzQMXkQ&t=52s
Clearly there's a lot of work to be done! We would be working on construction projects, removing debris, and cleaning up along the creek.
There is NO CHARGE to go on this trip, other than possibly buying two meals for yourself as we're travelling. We will stay in a local church, and meals will be provided while we're there.
Serving others is a wonderful blessing to those we help, but is also a blessing to us, as it allows us to be part of God's work and draw closer together as His followers. I would LOVE to have you come along on this trip!
