How do you describe something that is indescribable? How do you put into words something that is bigger than your vocabulary? This is the problem I am facing while trying to describe Sulphur Springs Workcamp 2009. To say it was good does not describe it well enough. To say it was incredible does not give it justice.
Here are some facts:
- 74 hours
- 180+ teenagers and adults
- 8 churches
- 5 denominations
- 15 houses painted and restored
- Countless lives changed
- 1 amazing God
But even these numbers do not give the three and a half days of Sulphur Springs Workcamp 2009 justice.
Students and adults worked hard to scrape, paint, trim, landscape, and restore fifteen homes in the Sulphur Springs area. We helped fifteen incredible individuals and families with amazing stories.
Our nightly evening worship services were incredible. God showed up in a real and powerful way. Jon Webb, Brandon Mitchell, Jared Hall, and many more were used to usher us into God’s presence.
As the director of SSWC, I want to personally say a big THANK YOU to the countless number of people who helped make SSWC happen. Thank you for praying. Thank you for giving your time, money, and energy. Thank you for fixing food or serving food. Thank you for getting up early and staying up late. Thank you for hanging out with teenagers. Thank you for playing dodgeball and volleyball at insanely late hours of the night. Thank you for driving vans full of teenagers. Thank you for picking up a paint scraper and paint brush. Thank you for supporting this ministry.
