We arrived in Dawson Springs around 3:30 Saturday afternoon. After we unpacked we decided to venture out and see the project we would be working on. Later we ate at Miss Becky’s Place. Some delicious home cookin’ was served at this quaint little restaurant.

Sunday’s Adventures

by JanetBuchanan | October 3, 2022 4:40 PM

We are staying at First Baptist Dawson Springs, who so graciously is opening their church fellowship center for the month of October for Long Term Recovery Volunteers. We attended Sunday School and church in the morning. The afternoon was spent praying over Dawson Springs.

The next adventure he took us on was to see a waterfall. Although the waterfall was dried up we did climb down among the rocks and see the beauty of the springs and caves that were below.

Reaching Out by Phone

by Janet Buchanan | October 4, 2022 2:19 PM

We were able to call several hundred people to ask if they still needed assistance due to the tornado. But more than just a call, we were able to pray for those and offer words of encouragement.

Our goal is to put up the siding on the house. We found it amusing that the official name of the siding was called “deer poop.”

After delivering the appliances, our favorite part was listening to the family's stories and prayer needs.  It was such a blessing to get to pray with them!

This was such an amazing experience. I am so humbled that God chooses to use us. Mission trips right here in the USA are powerful. God is moving in our nation and it is a blessing to be a part of the body of Christ.
