APPALACHIA - PRAYING PELICAN MISSIONS
*COST OF TRIP: $500
The Appalachian region is an amazing area of rich resources and beautiful landscapes. The people of Appalachia are very humble yet proud of their heritage and lifestyle. Although they are hardworking, a huge loss of jobs due to the decline of mining, steel, and manufacturing industries has led to the hardship of generational poverty. The shortage of gainful employment had led to severe drug and alcohol addiction issues in many communities and, as a result, poverty has taken its toll. It has fractured the heart of many and hopelessness is all too common a term used by many.
St. Tom’s will be partnering with Praying Pelican Missions to bring students to the heart of the Appalachian community. Throughout the week, students will have the opportunity to serve the needs of a local church congregation from doing
maintenance and repairs, to children’s ministry, to serving the homeless.
