Teens seek support for mission trip Nicaragua

DUBLIN — Two Pulaski County teens are looking to raise money to pay for a mission trip to Nicaragua next month.
Caitlin Worrel, 18, and Mandy Lester, 19, recently received acceptance letters for the trip and now need to raise $1,825 each by Aug. 5 to cover the cost.
They said they are willing to work for the funds, and they also will accept donations. Anyone wishing to schedule a job for the young women should call Heritage Church at (540) 674-9220 and ask to speak to youth pastor Michelle Cook.
Donations may be mailed to the Cleburne Boulevard church at P.O. Box 1565, Dublin, VA 24084. They ask that the name of the person who is to receive the donation be written on the check, or the donor may specify that it be split between Worrel and Lester.
The trip runs Aug. 11-21.
Worrel works for Shadow Ranch in Pulaski and competes in numerous horse shows. She graduated with highest honors from Pulaski County High School this year and was part of the National Honor Society. She attends church regularly and does Powerpoint for both Sunday services and for the youth on Wednesday nights.
This is the first out-of-country mission trip for Worrel. She went to Atlanta on a mission trip last summer.
Lester, a 2007 graduate of PCHS, went to Nicaragua in 2003. She said it changed her life, and she wants to witness again to the country where she left her heart.
She attended New River Community College this past year and will continue her studies there, as well as getting credentials at ADSOM, a West Virginia ministerial school.
She is active with the church youth, missionettes and the nursery, and helping church leaders. She also volunteers at the Roanoke Homeless shelter and soup kitchens.
Both Worrel and Lester are members of the church’s street drama team, Tres Arrows.
