A Safer, Drier, Warmer Home in Appalachia

Need some dry wall or OSB?  I can “supervise” someone else installing it!

Last week, I joined 31 other PVUMC youth and adults in a trip to the mountains of NC as we worked with Appalachia Service Project.  The purpose of ASP is “making homes safer, drier, and warmer.”  That’s just what we did!

My team of 4 youth and 3 adults joined another team of 4 youth and 2 adults redoing the inside of a home and putting up vinyl siding on the outside of the home.  We dry walled 3 rooms and one hall, covering the walls and ceilings.  We also put down new flooring in these same rooms.  The transformation was incredible!

What’s more incredible?  God’s transformational work  in the hearts of the team!

As youth and adults served as the hands and feet of Christ, we were drawn together in love with each other and with the families of Appalachia.  We were indeed one in the bond of Christ’s love.
