GILFORD — The Gilford Community Church youth group recently spent a week in New Jersey for their annual mission trip. The group took part in the Hurricane Sandy Relief.
Members of the youth group spent four days working on a home that was damaged by the storm. The house was flooded with over 4ft of water. The 14 participants insulated and replaced floors in several rooms. They also worked on the exterior of the house.
This was the seventh straight year the church has hosted a mission trip. Past trips have included New Orleans, New York, South Carolina, Pennsylvania, Florida and Vermont. The trips are organized through the Team Effort organization, which provides the group with housing, tools, food, and evening devotion times.
