Intergenerational Work Camp – Saturday, July 25th – Saturday August 1
More than thirty youth and adults are spending the week of July 25 – August 1 working on building projects with New Vision in Philippi, West Virginia. Please keep them in your prayers for safe travel and incredible learning and fun. We know they are working hard on several different projects.
New Vision is a Christian Community Development Organization working to ReEnergize Communities. It evolved from a rich 50 year history of ministry and development in rural communities in Appalachia and around the country.
From the New Vision web site:
ReThink…missions. Introduce your group to a mission experience of a different kind. Join others who are actively stewarding the earth’s resources while simultaneously helping people access economical alternative energy solutions that meet their energy needs.
RePower…communities. Your team will learn about how significant the burden of energy costs is for ministries, community facilities and for low to moderate income families. At the same time they are learning how to help people help themselves through renewable energy projects.
ReStore…hope. New Vision has created a way for the church to bring practical skills and economical solutions to people who need them the most. Your group can be a part of restoring hope to rural communities in our country through innovative renewable energy outreach projects.
