Why Appalachia?

Why Appalachia?

The portion of the Appalachian Mountains that stretches through the greater part of northern and eastern Kentucky is easily one of the most scenic areas in the United States. The amazing scenery hides a difficult economic and spiritual reality as one in three Appalachians lives in poverty. The Kentucky Appalachia is truly a place of great beauty, wonderful people, and great need.

“So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.”  – Galatians 6:10
