East Central Indiana United Methodists pictured at mission service work camp in Mississippi


SUNFLOWER, Miss. – With the goal of “making a difference,” 22 men and 14 women, mostly United Methodists from East Central Indiana, spent the week of March 2-8 working out of the Delta Grace Mission hub located in Sunflower, Miss.

Sunflower is a small town located in the heart of the Mississippi Delta, one of the poorest areas in the United States with high unemployment and much sub-standard housing. This mission construction work camp was organized by the Hagerstown UMC with substantial input from the UM churches in Losantville, Knightstown, Brookville, Liberty and Centerville. The team made substantial improvements on one structurally sound home and three not-so-structurally-sound homes. This is the ninth consecutive year that the Hagerstown church has organized a multiple-congregation winter construction work camp in the South.
