Thank you for supporting our youth mission trip! Nine youth and adults from Elwood Community Church spent the week of June 26 working alongside many people from several different churches and states repairing the homes of veterans in Reading, PA. In total, 400 campers worked on 61 homes for a combined 11,000 hours.  The work done included repairing porches, building wheelchair ramps, exterior painting, interior painting, and yard work, just to name a few.  Several campers were also able to spend time chatting with veterans, hearing their stories and praying with them. It was a great opportunity to come alongside new friends and share Jesus’ love with our neighbors in Pennsylvania. It is because of the generosity of the Elwood Community Church and the Village of Elwood that we were able to go and serve.  We are so very grateful.
