Mission work done locally

Covington resident, Summer Wofford, doesn’t appear to be afraid of heights or a little hard work while helping paint a home off Cedar Brook Drive in Conyers. Wofford, along with about 100 other volunteers who traveled from as far away as Wisconsin, are camped out at Smyrna Presbyterian’s 14th annual Mission Work Camp. The purpose of the local mission work is “not about the physical work that we do, but the fellowship and love of Christ that we are able to share with residents of Conyers and Covington,” according to Michael Sarvis, the director of Student Ministries at Smyrna Presbyterians Church.

The team of youth sent to the home off Cedar Brook Drive worked on the ceiling of the porch, as well as the corner of the porch, where moisture had gotten into the wood and rotted everything. While the campers are usually onsite from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., they do have a time of devotion during their lunch break. (Staff Photo: Julie Wells)
