My good friends (and former co-workers) have gone a little crazy! Blame it on the Carolina heat or the poor air quality from the volcanic ash in Iceland but they are staging an interesting sit in of sorts—maybe it is more accurately a “sit on” since they have vowed to spend 48 hours on the roof of the church ! Yep—that’s them in the picture above—looking over the edge! Teresa is Director of Family Ministries and Jen is Director of Youth Ministries ( and a bunch more fancy stuff that I don’t know her official title) at Epworth UMC in Concord, NC. They are both so mission oriented and love to tell others about the great things that they are blessed to be a part of and want to share that with the world…..so their plan is to spend 48 hours on the roof of the church to help promote and raise money for the various mission trips that the church supports. The 3 main ones they support are trips to Mexico (Samaritan’s Purse , Sandra’s House and also this year handing out shoes to kids!!! ), Carolina Cross Connection where teams go to help renovate houses, build ramps and a lot of other fun stuff, and Hinton Rural Life Center. (Websites to follow at end of blog post!)
So, anyway, check out their posts if you are a Facebook follower at
I am proud to call these amazing women “friends” and wish I was there in person the next couple of days to watch their antics!!!
