This year, we will be traveling to Smithville, TX. It will be our first year traveling here, and we hope to build a great relationship with the community. Throughout the week, we will work on homes and local areas in need. Past projects have included roofing, framing, painting, sheetrock, and much more. Each work site is run by a minimum of 2 adults (a 1:6 adult to youth ratio), and the youth staff will work diligently to ensure the safety of all participants. At the end of the week, we will host a carnival for kids and families in Smithville.
Each day, you'll wake up, eat breakfast, pack your lunch and have a morning devotional before leaving for your worksite around 9am. After send-off, your team will take a 15-passenger van to your worksite. You’ll work all-day and return to the campus in the afternoon, where you'll have free time to rest, shower or just hang out. Each night, there will be an incredible time of fun and worship after dinner.
