Okay, I'm back on th' blog. Just returned from a week on a volunteer rebuilding trip in Hayesville, NC with my church. The hardships these families endure in the Appalachian region is humbling, yet they possess a joy for life and an unshakable faith that seems to see above and past all of the sadnesses they told us of. So inspiring. It was a privilege to be down there with them — as well as helping with their homes. If you've never done a volunteer rebuild, I recommend trying it. There is such need, and often there are local efforts that may only take up one day of your time. And as conditions in the world we live in can be so harsh and unforgiving, it really is a blessing to be able to reach out, help, and connect with these folks. To whom much is given much is expected. Where can you help fill a need?
