Volunteers reach out in the Kentucky mountains

SCN Volunteers traveled last week deep into the mountains of Irvine, Kentucky. Volunteers assisted Mr. Dallas, a gentle man, who lives a solitary life but whose heart and hands reach out to take care of many of God’s creatures.

Mr. Dallas was so appreciative of people reaching out to him and assisting him with home repairs such as new flooring, gutters and freshly painted living room and kitchen. His eyes filled with tears as the volunteer team said their goodbyes after spending four days with him. The SCN volunteers feel that they are blessed to have met such a kind soul.

    I spent 3 happy years teaching GED students in the mountains surrounding Irvine. Thanks for sharing this and taking care of those good people. I miss their simple loving ways.
