46 missionaries to South Carolina

The t-shirts have been tie-dyed, the 15 passengers vans are on hold, and the suitcases are beginning to fill up! Higher Ground is sending 46 missionaries to South Carolina very early on Sunday morning. Our caravan, consisting of four 15-passenger vans, a mini-van, and an SUV, will make the 17 hour trek to our destination, where we will spend the week doing construction work for the people of Lexington County. While we don’t know what we will be doing there, most likely we can expect to be roofing, siding, building ramps, painting, installing flooring, and perhaps even framing a house. On Friday we will participate in a community wide cookout. We return home on Saturday, Aug. 2nd. Each day during the trip we will post updates and pictures right here on this blog – we are eager to have you join us on our adventure!

We would love for you to be praying by name for each student and adult leader who is participating on this trip. Our group is divided into smaller teams for the trip, and those teams are listed below. Maybe you can pray for one team a day!
