Mission Vermont

July 17-24, 2010

A ministry team of 11 members traveled to The Fold in Lyndonville, VT. The Fold Family Ministries provides affordable Christ-centered residential care for troubled teens and their families in crisis.

Much of the team's work was devoted to meeting updated fire code regulations. This work included relocating a door, replacing railings, installing fire-rated walls and preparing the walls for painting. Other projects included repairing and painting picnic tables and benches, electrical work, and lots of landscaping and mowing

The team also hosted the Tim Hash family--BFC missionaries at The Fold--for dinner nightly. Sharing meals and interacting with the girls' home residents and staff members were highlights as well.

The team included Gary & Dottie Sterner, Ken & Jane Checkeye, Len & Carol Smith, Autumn Nester, Samantha Mullins, and Chris, Beckie, and Albion Merrick.
