For our 2017 Spring Break Mission Trip students served in Rockcastle County, Kentucky through the Christian Appalachian Project (http://www.christianapp.org/). Students assisted with home repairs and had time for fellowship, prayer and reflection. Below are some reflections from those who went on the trip.
Over spring break, this year's MCC mission trip took their second trip to Kentucky. This was once again a fun, exciting, and memorable trip. The group worked through the organization, Christian Appalachian Project (CAP), which serves some of the most impoverished counties in Kentucky. Thirteen students and two chaperones attended this year's mission trip.
The mission was to work with elderly housing. When arriving the team was split into two groups. One group worked to build a wheelchair ramp. A second group worked to re-side a house for a lady that was diagnosed with a degenerative spinal condition.
Through this experience the students were not only given the opportunity to serve others, but also to get to know them and talk with them about their story. The students came away with an appreciation of what they have and also a desire to share their abilities with others. Most of all they were able to see Christ in the poor, elderly, and the disabled and learned to treat them as Christ would.
I would encourage all of our students to think about attending this great opportunity next year!
Check back during the 2017/2018 school year for information about our next Spring Break Mission Trip.
