A team of 140+  from Kilpatrick Baptist Association and Hephzibah Baptist Association traveled to WV/VA in July to minister to those living in the area around Bluefield, WV/VA. We had 6 VBS teams serving in Matoaka, Pocahontas, Pipestem, Princeton, Bluewell, and Edgmont. We had 250+ in the various VBS classes for the week with at least 18 salvations.

We had a construction team which worked hard pressure washing and painting a mission house in Pocahontas and Tender Mercies (food bank) in Princeton as well as painting a concrete wall in Matoaka. The construction team also had a few guys who repaired the food bank's riding lawn mower.

There was an oil change station in Pocahontas for the first time during our annual trip. The 3 member team was blessed to do 29 oil changes, 2 brake jobs, 1 sway bar replacement, 4 damaged oil plug replacements, and 1 transmission leak repair.
