Youth mission trip helps rebuild hurricane victim's homes

Twenty-two members of the Moravian Church in Sturgeon Bay recently returned from a youth mission trip from North Carolina that was devastated by a hurricane last September.  The group worked with a disaster relief team out of Wilmington on the week-long Hurricane Florence recovery project.  Tracy Vreeke, who was one of six chaperones on the trip, says the group of teens focused on rebuilding homes in the impoverished area of Burgaw.  She describes the living conditions of residents who had lost nearly all their possessions in the hurricane.



Vreeke says the mission group of sixteen teens worked hard in the extreme heat and humidity to accomplish the rebuilding of five homes the last week in June.  The area has not received much state or federal aid, according to Vreeke.  You can see pictures of the Sturgeon Bay Moravian Church youth mission trip below.
