Anchor Ridge had the pleasure of hosting our first mission team of the year from Tomoka Christian Church – Ormond Beach, FL! This team was comprised of 24 youth and adult leaders.
During the team’s time with Anchor Ridge, they made a difference in the lives of Appalachian Mountain families in North Carolina and West Virginia in so many ways. Much of their time was spent bagging and preparing provisions to be distributed to families and serving in the Anchor Ridge warehouse facility. Also during their trip, the team led kids and families in Worship, prayed with kids, and put smiles on their faces through face painting and hair coloring!
A highlight of the week was when everyone headed into the mountains of West Virginia for a special Easter Event. During this event, kids received special Easter Baskets and bags, were served a hotdog meal and received much needed items such as food, toiletries and other household goods. Most importantly, during this Easter Event, 2o people received the FREE GIFT OF SALVATION THROUGH JESUS CHRIST! While it is and will always be our mission to help those living in poverty, our primary goal is to lead people to Christ! This week was life-changing for many people, in many different ways!
