The Countdown month

It's hard to believe that one month today another group of adults and young people from the church will be leaving on another journey of hope and faith. We will be returning to Kilmarnock, VA to help build the "house next door". What a wonderful opportunity this presents - we will be able to see the finished product of last years trip, we will get to see the happy homeowner, living her dream in a house that we helped build. I still have a hard time getting my mind around the fact that our group raised the walls of someone's house, providing them with shelter, one of the foundations of our existence. I look forward to seeing Pearl standing in the doorway of the house that we and God built together!

It will be another large group this year with 23 of us in total. There will be 12 adults and 11 youth (ages 14 - 18). Some have been on this journey before, for others this will be their first experience. Whatever their reasons may be for participating, it is my hope that God will shine in their lives on this trip and that they will stop and listen to what he is saying to them.

There is still plenty of planning before the vehicles pull out of the church parking lot in the early morning hours of March 14th......but what a journey it will be!

We invite you to follow along with us and encourage you to share our story with your friends and neighbours. We are a "Community of Faith, Reaching out in Love" and thank you for your continued support.
