Church Sign

by Kalie Tripp | June 16, 2021 8:00 PM

Exciting time! The church had a sign painted, but hadn't got it up near the road yet. So our team got to making sure it would stay firm for years to come! Weatherproofing the sign and concrete in the base should keep it up for years to come.

Last Time at Turn Church

by Kalie Tripp | June 18, 2021 6:03 AM

We were able to connect with Pastor Tiller and First Lady Latricia before the team left town. We walked through the building and showed them all our hard work. We can't thank them enough for how trusting they were to let us serve their church and trust all these kids from Chicago with their church.
