"A once in a lifetime experience. That is what I would call the mission trip. If there is one thing I will always remember it would be the smiles we got from Glen and his son and granddaughters. I found it so amazing how just one week has just changed me. The new people I worked with everyday weren’t just my “church friends” anymore. They became my real friends and a family to me.”

This is part of Jay's reflection following the flood recovery mission trip of Old Pine Presbyterian Church to Huntingdon, West Virginia, in the summer of 2011.  They worked through West Virginia Ministry of Advocacy and Workcamps (WVMAW), which numerous teams annually, including youth teams. Volunteers help with home repairs and flood mitigation efforts.
