Lighthouse Mission - in Kentucky

The First Presbyterian Church of Sparta NJ made a Mission Trip to help out the people of "The Lighthouse Mission" in Pineville,Kentucky last summer. This is the opening draft of a forthcoming video about the trip (now complete -see the final version HERE). Our group helped the Lighthouse Mission prepare some special "Back To School" supply packs for kids in this depressed area. We also helped a local recovering Addict (Frank Creech - who is sings two songs in this short feature) to rebuild a house he bought with his life savings. It will be a Halfway House for people in recovery. What a summer! More value of this trip came back to the people who went to participate than to those who recieved our help. Somehow, mathematically, there is a logical explanation for that but that's how God works sometimes, I think. Leonard Luckadoo is a contractor who has a music ministry to prisons and nursing homes in Kentucky. He is the grandfather of one of the volunteers from the local community who helped us at Frank's place. Leonard Sings the opening ... "Lighthouse". The lighthouse at the start is still standing in Pensacola, FL after Ivan, Dennis and Katrina, not to mention the storm of '29 and the late unpleasantness of 1861-65. More about this trip HERE.
