RVAA Team Repairs Florida Church

Four adults and 11 students departed Rogue Valley Adventist Academy (RVAA) in Medford, Ore., on a spring break mission to help repair, paint and re-carpet the Fort Myers Spanish Church in Florida.

After leading Sabbath School on their first day, the group began their physical labor on Sunday and accomplished three days' worth of tasks in one day. Though the list of repairs suggested additional help would be needed after the RVAA team left, the team worked so quickly the entire church project was completed with enough time to pay extra attention to the details.

Simultaneously, the students spent their mornings presenting a Week of Prayer for the Port Charlotte (Fla.) Adventist School. After the assembly, the RVAA students were given the opportunity to help teachers in their classrooms, and they even took on the extra task of remodeling a playground structure for the school.

Students worked hard and are excited this church can now continue to be a blessing to the families of Fort Myers.
