This week in Oxford Alabama, we have six churches here to serve. There are 181 participants, staff, and local volunteers working this week to make a difference in the Anniston/Oxford area. The students and adults were divided into 14 crews and they are doing everything from painting, building wheelchair ramps, siding, building decks, and roofing for various homeowners.
Along with meeting the physical needs, students are eager to meet the spiritual needs as well by faithfully sharing the Gospel. Tuesday and Wednesday the students worked hard all day on the worksites but got some free time on Wednesday night. Rather than going off to do other things, members of various churches gathered to have a time of worship in the public park. There were people from the community joining in as well.
These students and adults are doing great things this week and we are excited to see how God uses them in Alabama and back home.
