Thanking God for a Good Week in North Carolina

            Thank you for praying for the HLPC team that went to North Carolina last week, June 14-20, with the Carolina Mountain Mission.  14 of our church family went to minister to the people of Haywood County- particularly serving some of the impoverished and widows.  It was a very good week.

            I’m very grateful for the many answered prayers.  God gave us safety in travel, no vehicle issues, no injuries, and no illnesses.  Also, God gave His blessing to our work projects. We were painting, doing yard work, visiting widows, a nursing home, and participated in a very large grocery giveaway.  Some of our number spent the week building a ramp for a widow suffering with Parkinson’s.

            Carolina Mountain Mission uses a camp in the mountains called Camp Hope. That camp serves as the base for teams to go out on service projects during the week.  Meals, a place for rest, games, and worship take place at the camp.  The temperatures were great as we enjoyed cool nights and mornings- I even wore a sweat shirt every day at breakfast!

            Soon our team will be giving a report and showing you pictures of our week.  We hope to take this trip again and that it provides an affordable, intergenerational opportunity for service and ministry.  You can learn more about the Carolina Mountain Mission by going to  Thank you again for your prayers as God was good and gracious!
