Young Servants

05 Jul
The whole group!

Last month over 30 youth from three different youth groups in Wisconsin, made the long trip to North Carolina. They got to hear about the work of Bible translation, fly in a small airplane and were fed really well.

But for a good part of every day, they served! Half of the group served at JAARS, the technical organization that serves Wycliffe Bible Translators. The other 15 youth and 5 leaders served our residents at Waxhaw Creek Apartments where Anne is the manager.

They washed windows that are difficult to reach, they cleaned the four laundry rooms used by the 42 residents, they spread mulch in the hot Carolina sun and they painted.

During their breaks during the day, many of our retired residents shared stories from serving with Wycliffe and were an inspiration for the young people. A number of the group did not normally attend church so they were able to hear the WHY of serving God from our residents.

What a blessing to have them come!
