Every year toward the beginning of summer, we devote an entire week to some sort of missions work with our youth group. (Fuel is the name of our youth group😃…. Just in case someone is new here) we have done many things over the past few years. We spent several years volunteering at our local Ronald McDonald House. We have also served at a local inner city church and clothes closet. We even spent one year just working at our own campus and doing some cleaning and updates to the campus. We are always looking for opportunities to serve our community and we always make that a top priority to instill in our youth.
This year we served another church in the area that had some work that needed to be done. We painted and moved wood.
We pressure washed vehicles and spent several days going door to door in their surrounding neighborhoods. We invited their neighbors to church and always offered to pray with them.
We spent one morning at a nursing home. (I think it was more like an assisted living home?) We all had great stories to tell from talking to the residents and are planning on going back very soon!
On our final day, we headed to downtown Charleston and walked around in a park in the middle of our city and offered to just pray for people. It always amazes me the way that our students will step up to the plate and pray for others. God certainly had our steps ordered as we made numerous connections with people that needed a blessing!
This day blessed us just as much as we were able to bless others! ❤️
I am always extremely proud of our students!! They work hard. They all have such a servants heart. I am forever thankful to get to play a small role in the lives of these amazing people that will without a doubt be world changers!!
