Texas teens dig right in to work at UMCH

Thirty-one youth and eight adults packed several vans in East Bernard, Texas to drive to UMCH last week. From Tuesday to Thursday, this group worked HARD around our campus, jumping in to help wherever we needed.

They spent their mornings doing everything from digging holes for trees…

And that’s just the half of it! They worked incredibly hard all morning and through lunch. Then late in the afternoon, they would clean up and set off on adventures around Atlanta. They visisted the Martin Luther King, Jr. Center and Centennial Park…

Words cannot express how grateful we are to these teens and their leaders. Their positive attitudes and can-do spirits brightened our campus, and we already miss having them around!
