St. James Rolls out the Red Carpet for Youth Camp Letter of Thanks from Youth Camp Counselor I grew up in Danville and was so proud of all of the people in our community who were kind and loving. All of our students had an incredible experience. Not only were homes refur- bished but students and resi- dents lives were impacted with the love of Jesus Christ. Dear St. James UMC: I brought 90 people to serve at Group’s Workcamp Mission Trip in Danville. It was an honor to be there. Your church made us feel so welcome! We are thankful for all of the treats and amazing homemade pizza you shared with us! What a gi of love and me!!! Please thank the generous people of your congregaon!
