Thrid Trip to Prattsville

Our annual Spring Break trip was planned for Miracle Hill. It changed when a young man from church asked "where will we be traveling on the disaster response trip this year"? So a group of us, nine in all from PleasantDale traveled to Prattsville, NY spending the week working on several homes. The week leading up to Easter was open allowing us to help others on such a special week. Three people were making their first trip. They now understand you do leave feeling like you received more than you gave. The snow covered mountains made the travel so joyful we simply didn't want to leave. We will be one of the last groups that uses Huntersfield Christian Training Center as a disaster response site. This mountain top retreat should be visited to be believed.
This trip came about because a seventeen year old believes in the path he is walking, and inspired us to go with him. We were used as a tool to help other and are happier for it.
