Week 7 in Tuskegee
Youth mission camp in Tuskegee came to a close with 2 great home repair teams! A team from St. Mark UMC in Birmingham returned for their second summer. They worked very hard with Ms. Sarah in Tuskegee to re-plumb all the pipes in her mobile home. She now has running water! Our friends from St. Mark were joined by new friends from Lynnville UMC of Lynnville, TN. Two crews served throughout the week with Ms. Helen in Tuskegee, Mr. George in Loachapoka, and Ms. Alfreda in Tuskegee. A week after the team left, Ms. Alfreda called the ARM office to check-in and expressed her gratitude for being “treated like a person” by our mission teams and staff. It warmed our hearts to hear how she had been touched by God’s love through our friends from Lynnville!
Thank you St. Mark UMC and Lynnville UMC!
Week 7 in York
Our ministry in Sumter County closed out with our good friends from Muirs Chapel UMC of Greensboro, NC. Muirs Chapel has sent teams to serve with us for several years. We were so excited to have them back again. This team had 2 home repair crews and a day camp crew. The day campers had the pleasure of serving as chaperones for the annual day camp field trip, which was at the Birmingham Zoo this summer! Our ministry interns and mission teams were hosted for dinner by York Baptist Church, which is where Joe, our Director of Ministry Operations, grew up!
Thank you Muirs Chapel UMC!
