My Town the mission Field

Heading into this part of town was not advisable but this Sunday School Class was not going to be deterred. Instead of talking about the Meth problem in their rural town they were going to do something about it. One of the families who frequented the Church asking for assistance was right in the middle of the hot spot for Meth trafficking.

Showing in a practical way the love of Christ the class, made up of 20 – 30 year old couples, spent two Saturdays doing fix up task around the house. With a nice looking home and new found friendships, this family has been an example to the possible road out of addiction and depression.

“I feel like I’m in a dream world” The once addicted mother said. I love my Sunday School Class. When I feel like I’m not gonna make it I just call one of them and they are on my door step telling me about the strength Christ can give. Before, I felt trapped. If I needed something fixed around the house I felt like the only friends I had were the people who sold me the Drugs. Now I have my Sunday School Class.
