Dean and Matt went on a 4 day youth oriented mission called Weekend of the Cross. You can read about WOC here.
Dean went as a chaperon/work leader so they could do some boy stuff together.
Churches from all over the region went to Mandeville, LA to help repair houses for families in need. Dean's group worked somewhere in Hammond but they had groups working all over.
Dean took lots of photos of his work group but since I don't know all the kids, I'll just show a few....
When they got there, a band was playing ...everyone said they are awesome. The name of the band is "Heaven's to Betsy."
they all worked hard...it was soooo hot.
but each night after worship service they got to play hard too.....
apparently, they were well fed...
Everyone came home exhausted....but happy they helped those in need....and eager for next year's WOC!
