The Grace United Methodist Youth (GUMY) high school mission trip team arrived safely in Clendenin, WV this evening. After a very long day of travel, a few stops for fuel and a Subway sandwich picnic dinner at a park, we were anxious to stretch out for one last time and get unpacked!
We met our Praying Pelican team leaders and had a short introduction to our week. We will begin the week with Sunday worship at our host church, First UMC of Clendenin, and then take some time to acquaint ourselves with the neighborhood and invite residents to a picnic party we will host later in the week.
So far, it sounds as if we will have a variety of work to do at multiple locations, some of which are within walking distance of our host church. We are looking forward to sharing our experiences with you here at our blog, and invite you to com back and watch for photos and updates.
Your high school mission team!
