Youth group makes house repairs in W.Va.

Twelve high school students and six adults from St. John’s United Church of Christ in Clear Spring traveled recently to Webster Springs, W.Va., on a mission trip.

The mission was to repair houses for those with disabilities and the elderly.

The group worked on three homes in the area by demolishing and then rebuilding a deck off the back of a house trailer, replacing steps on the front and back of the trailer, replacing a floor, painting a sign, and cleaning and painting a ceiling damaged by coal dust.

The group worked through the West Virginia Advocacy and Work Camp organization. This is the group’s third summer working with this organization in various parts of West Virginia.
