Lives are being changed at LMSalk!  Through dedicated and selfless volunteers, God uses young people and adults to come together for a week to be the hands and feet of Jesus by repairing homes and hearts of our homeowners.  In turn, these homeowners touch the hearts of the campers as they work alongside to make repairs and join in the community of faith.  God is a very real presence and when we all respond to His call, we find purpose and meaning!

This year our theme was "Put on the Full Armor of God – the battle is REAL!" We explored, through the scriptures, the belt of TRUTH, breastplate of RIGHTEOUSNESS, feet to spread the gospel of PEACE, shield of FAITH, helmet of SALVATION, and sword of the SPIRIT.—Ephesians 6:10-17

​“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”-- Joshua 1:9

"The 7 Words from the Cross" was our theme this year since it was our 7th year, in the 7th month, of 2017!  We learned through the scriptures that we can apply this to our daily life, not just around Easter time.  "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him, should not perish, but have everlasting life."--John 3:16
