Fort Hill Presbyterian Church Workcamp

We were honored to host the fine folks from Fort Hill Presbyterian Church (and Rodney too) on a workcamp trip earlier this month! Check out a few pics of their time here working at Oakhurst Outreach in White Sulphur Springs, WV. (Thanks to Abby Martin for the pics.)


Thanks for a great week! Come back soon.
