Summer Work Camp for Anglican Teens

I am passing on a call from Lisa Marion to anyone who has, or knows, young folk between the ages of 14 and 20 who might be interested in participating in a summer work camp in Valdosta, Georgia June 20-28.

Here's what it's all about.

Valdosta, the birthplace of Doc Holliday, is a modern Southern town with a big heart in a world where too many people just look the other way. The citizens of Valdosta are determined to fix the homes of their less fortunate neighbors. The entire community has made a commitment to eliminate all substandard housing by 2020.

You'll have an amazing opportunity to help with this as you tackle projects like ... replacing rotten siding for an elderly widow, giving a disabled man the gift of mobility with a wheelchair ramp, fixing rickety front steps for a single parent with low income. Or, you may boost a struggling family's self-esteem by making their house look like a million bucks with a bright new coat of paint.

Come experience true Southern hospitality, and after a hard day's work, kick back in one of the newest and best air-conditioned schools you've seen in a long time. Brave the Georgia heat and visit a real hot spot for meaningful ministry.
