Boone 2018


I had the privilege to attend to Deep Impact Mission Camp in Boone, NC with Avery Miles, and Kaden Lindberg. It was an incredible week of serving the community with outreach and evangelism. Both Kaden and Avery had an incredible week and you should all be proud of their efforts. Each of them was involved with a variety of projects as they became part of group that did just about everything. Part of their assignment landed them at the Hospitality House (, a tremendous ministry that ranges from a homeless shelter, food distribution, job training, and family support. We assisted a crew that meets every Wednesday that cuts, splits and distributes firewood for people who can’t afford it, but rely on it to help them heat their homes and cook meals. We also helped them with their inventory, cleaning, as well as assembling 17 carts for use in their food handouts. The most challenging task was digging out for a concrete pad and drainage pipe that will be used to build a bus stop for the local transit service known as the “Apple Cart” for use of their residents and clients.

There were numerous other projects they participated in such as playing games with children at a local mobile home park and praying for the needs of the people in that development. Any needs in the area were reported back to the host church of the camp, First Baptist Boone. We also handed out flyers to promote the VBS week for the church, as well as information about the church. The most memorable was working for a local thrifts store called The Ram’s Rack Thrift Shop. We helped clean up and organize a break room for the staff, stocked shelves, sorted through numerous donation bins, and Avery found a sweet adidas jacket for $4.00! The money made from the shop is used to fund various ministries in the area ranging from clothing, home repairs, and food supplies. We closed out the week by cleaning out gutters, pressure washing a deck and cleaning windows for an elderly lady from the church.

Each day began with a 7am breakfast, an 8:15 departure time, and we returned at 3 each afternoon. The evening was concluded with a dinner, and worship time every night. Two young men from another church gave their life to Christ, and they were both baptized at an outdoor park nearby. We appreciate the support and prayers from all of you. It was a great trip and we’re all glad to be a part of it.

Blessings to each of you.

Love you guys,
