In July, my family and I had the wonderful opportunity to go on a life changing mission trip with our church, Washington Baptist, to Jonesville, VA. Twenty adults and seventeen teenagers and children were able to make the trip. Jonesville is a small, sleepy little town with approximately 700 residents. Jonesville is not an affluent part of Virginia, and some of the residents are in financial crisis after having been laid off from the coal mine that has closed down. Driving through this town will make you feel like you have stepped back into the 1960’s.
