Last week, Anchor Ridge had the pleasure of teaming up with a mission group to bring Hope and Smiles to families throughout the Appalachian Mountains!

The week began with an outreach event in North Carolina, where families were blessed with food, clothing, hygiene items and other goods, while being shown the Love of Christ! During the outreach event, kids had the opportunity to get their face painted, hair colored, nails colored and participate in other fun activities. There is nothing like seeing smiles light up on the faces of kids that are in desperate situations!

Throughout the week, the team joined Anchor Ridge in West Virginia where we had the opportunity to spend quality time with some of the sweetest people and families you could meet. We had the opportunity to hear their stories, learn the history of their towns and communities, and most importantly, pray with and encourage individuals. The week wrapped up with an exciting distribution event where thousands of pounds of provisions were distributed in two towns. Smiles were EVERYWHERE! We are thankful for all of our friends and partners that make it possible to put a smile on a child’s face.
