We can’t believe that we just wrapped up our tenth year of Change The World: Mission Madisonville! As I sit and reflect over this year’s trip, I am amazed at God’s faithfulness through CTW. It’s crazy to think about how deep our roots are growing each year. We are seeing relationships being built like never before, families coming together, and kids coming to know and accept Jesus into their hearts.
The most significant impact that the Madisonville community has on our leaders is the relationships that develop and grow during each trip. This year, some of our leaders met the kids for the first time, others have seen babies grow up into fourth graders, and some are somewhere in between. What makes CTW so special is that we return to the same place each year which gives our leaders the opportunity to be a recurring presence in the lives of the kids. The ability to come back to the same place spurs leaders to apply multiple years in a row because of the impact the community has made on them and the relationships they’ve built with the kids.
We have compiled a list of stories that just scratch the surface of the amazing life change that happens to the leaders and children of Madisonville. We are already anticipating next year’s Madisonville trip and can’t wait to continue the work of building relationships with the community. This is only the beginning… Here’s to ten more years in Madisonville!
