Appalachia Outreach 2018
This year we have 46 MA students heading out to Manchester, KY to serve the community. Add in the staff, parents, a group from Highland Academy and one student from Spring Valley Academy and we will have over 80 ready to make a difference in Manchester! We will be staying in a local community center with 4 showers and nothing to lay down on but the floor in which we walk on. However, that is all part of the mission experience! Students and adults will be well fed as we have a top notch chef from Georgia making some gourmet meals. Volunteers will be building an addition on to a house, building a playground, gutting and renovating another and hanging drywall in another home, among other things. Each team of about 15 participants, will have two days to complete their tasks and give the homes/schoolyard a fresh makeover. We will end the trip with Sabbath, and after the hard work, a day of rest and worship will be a welcome relief.
