Annual trip to Tunica provides wealth of blessings
Every summer since 1995 the Tunica Community Ministry has hooked up with churches from all over the country to bring young missionaries to Tunica.
Over the 16 year span, the program has hosted approximately 5,000 missionaries who have performed $40,000 worth of construction projects in the county. The construction work includes building wheelchair ramps, cleaning, and painting houses or other buildings in need and yard work, among other things.
This summer, a group of 28 students, ages 12-18, and six adults from Pittsburgh, PA, made Tunica their home for a week. While here, the students visited the Palmer Home in Hernando, helped with a Vacation Bible School, visited the jail and performed construction work around town.
