Nazareth Farm Iona in Mission Trip

Katrina Flood – Nazareth Farm

Katrina Flood"Nazareth Farm was an experience that surpassed all of my expectations. Immersing myself in the Appalachian culture of West Virginia and living simply for a week opened my eyes to so much. Each day, we went out to different work sites to do home repair, work at homeless shelters and help out wherever they needed. After a day of service (and a bucket shower, of course), we were able to take time to reflect. The retreat aspect of the farm gave meaning to all of the service we were doing. It helped to tie the whole week together. Naz Farm and all of the people I spent my week with will always have a special place in my heart. I got more out of the week than I could have ever imagined. As they say at the Farm: expect a miracle."
