Adults (18 or older) who would like to join other OPC adults in allocating a week or a weekend to answer the call to help on a very important missions project and make a difference in peoples' lives. Construction skills such as carpentry, roofing, wiring and/or plumbing could be very valuable. However, there always seems to be lots of opportunities for "grunt" or "go for" work for those of us having little if any construction experience. Watch the weekly announcements for the next mission opportunity!
