UNBELIEVABLE HEROES OF CHRIST UNITED METHODIST CHURCH YOUTH GROUP-PLANO TEXAS

Amid the flush of great 1st responders to help with rebuild of May 19. 20th and 31st tornado ravaged Oklahoma, there is also a quiet influx of people this week (June 16-22) actually 170 mostly young kids (Freshman, Juniors, Sophmores, Seniors in highschool) helping those struggling, at times, with the ravages of life (in Oklahoma).
(I WILL POST PICS AS SOON AS I CAN UPLOAD THEM
They arrived Saturday and Sunday and began setting up shop in Chandler, OK to get ready to spread out all across Lincoln County. This young youth group, from Christ United Methodist Church in Plano Texas, not only raised money for all the home renovation supplies, but for the van rentals to get them to Oklahoma, the gas, any and all expenses. They gave up summer jobs etc to do this in late June. My group looks like the Oklahoma wind would blow them off the scafolding but they seem to have both endless strength and energy. /> I've seen wood in front of houses, paint buckets etc. and they will fix roofs, paint houses, including a very peeling house (mine-the Chandler similar church already powerwashed it), build porches, gardens, everything imaginable.


I am still in awe that someone submitted my house. I really tried to get them to give my work to tornado victims but they said they already have teams focused there.

Although it is a church youth group, they are focused on sharing humanity. These kids are true heroes. They are out of the public eye, helping those affected by life. Chandler is more low income or struggling families than not. I work and don't put myself in that category but there are many things (due to daughter's murder and my CARAVAN TO CATCH A KILLER tours) that I can't afford. I would never be able to paint my house if someone hadn't submitted my name to them. Christ United Methodist Church Youth group, their leaders, Pastor Carson and his group, all have a place near my heart forever
