 Appalachian State University Wesley Foundation Center

  (United Methodist Campus Ministry)

What a great time as the Outreach Ministry fed about 100 students in the Wesley Foundation Center at ASU.  The kids were thrilled and commented during the worship service afterwards it was the best meal they had ever been served!  One young person walked into the room and excitedly yelled MEAT!  We packed up the leftovers for them to enjoy in the upcoming days.  There were 11 of us that served and of course kudos to ALL who prepared the fabulous food and made this possible.
Youth Working to Help Others
We had a wonderful evening with the youth from St. Joseph's University in Pennsylvania.  They came in with radiant smiles, slightly sunburned faces and large appetites.  We had lots and lots of delicious food and they truly enjoyed every bite.  They were so appreciative, with some returning to the serving line 3 times… a huge complement to the ladies cooking at West Jefferson United Methodist Church.    They took bags of brownies and some sandwiches to enjoy later.  We enjoyed visiting with them during dinner.  
They went to Mt.  Jefferson for a hike with a Park Ranger and to view a special sighting of some light that appears in the sky infrequently.  More than 30 students worked on the grounds at the Catholic Church and Mt. Jefferson State Park, and roofed one half of a house, completing the roof the next day and moving on to other items on their planned agenda.  Everyone had a wonderful time.
