The Roots Ministry that I volunteered for brought high school students during their spring break to Mississippi to rebuild homes of those who have been long forgotten by many and overlooked by many more since the storms of 2005. These high school students served their hearts out and received many amazing experiences and lasting memories. Some of them were returning as Juniors and Seniors after coming here in 2007 as freshman and sophomores to rebuild a church and school. We got to see the finished buildings and have service in the church that these students helped put the walls up in. Since leaving this ministry I have sincerely missed these students and continue to be rewarded by watching them continue into college and travel the world and serve in many great ways becoming young men and women that I am proud to have been a part of their lives!
