APPALCHAIN SERVICE PROJECT

early tomorrow i will be driving to my church to meet up with 42 other people so tht we can travel down to i think Omar West Virginia so we can repairs houses for people tht are less fortunate. this is a trip tht i have went on for 13 years all of them we consecutive years except the one year i couldnt make it cuz of my recovery was not good enough yet. so i had to skip one year nd went back the followin year, i really enjopy this trip for a number of reasons. 1 was the reason i started going on this trip was tht the minister of the church was very close with my brother nd he never could get my brotrher to go cuz of baseball in the summer. so he got me to come wen i was young but old enough to go i was 15. i went this year nd really enjoyed it partly for the 2nd reason y i go, which was cuz this girl i was kinda close with went so i eventually got closer with her during the trip. it didnt last any serious time but every year after tht for 4 or 5 yeasrs i would hook up with a different girl nd wen i say hook up i was only like 15 so it would jus be innnocent kissin or somethin innocent tht would turn out to be nothin more than a lil fun. but ehh ya no it was fun. the 3rd reason was cuz of all my friends came down with me or i would make stronger friends with some fo the people at my church. the 4th reason was cuz i really like helpiun people out nd by jus spendin a week down here it helps the family whose house we work on alot, so its prolly not too good doin it for tht reason but it allows u to feel good about urself too. number 5 is tht this trip brings me closer wit God since it is church based so most of the time down there has something dealing with God, i really like tht aspect of this trip. so even tho i have to sleep on the floor of a bball court nd the food is not too good at all most times its wayy too hot either while im repairin the houses or sleepin at night i still return every year. even tho the first like 2 or 3 years i didnt have a choice cuz the minister made me come down i still return.oo ya the first like 8 9 or 10 years i went on this trip it wasnt even my official church, even tho i worked there nd  pretty much came all the time. but i didnt become an official member until about 2 years ago. but they were def my 2nd family anyway. so i will see yallin about 10 days wish me luck nd hopefully ill be having fun nd pray for great weather so we can accomplish all the work needed to be done this upcoming week. have a great week everyone God Bless..
