Life Update

I went to Kentucky for Spring Break and worked with the organization Christian Outreach to Appalachian People or COAP. Forty of us drove down and lived in cabins in the mountains, rehabbed old and built new houses. We painted, roofed, constructed, put up siding, and moved around a lot of dirt for the people of Harlan Kentucky, a poor coal mining town on the border of VA. It was nice to not get cell phone reception and be away from my computer. Not to mention hiking up mountains, playing ultimate frisbee by a huge lake listening to God in the quiet and learning a lot about a new way of life. It was beautiful. I love getting away with amazing people and serving together.
