HANNIBAL — Approximately 200 middle school and high school students from across seven states (Oklahoma, Illinois, Texas, South Carolina, Missouri, Wisconsin and Tennessee) traveled to Hannibal to be World Changers during the week of July 25-Aug. 1.

The youth worked in low-income neighborhoods re­placing roofs and siding on homes, painting, and installing insulation — and in the process, providing hope to residents in need.

“This was a life-changing week for all involved,” said John Bailey, Team Leader for World Changers.

“The students who participated in World Changers saw that they can make a difference. And the residents whose homes were worked on saw that the young people offer hope for our future.”

On average, participating students paid $260 to take part in the week. This summer, 98 World Changers projects took place in more than 85 cities from Alaska to Florida, New York to California, and many places in between.

“World Changers” is in its 19th summer of operation and is an initiative of the North American Mission Board. This was World Changers’ second summer in Hannibal. The youth were housed at Hannibal-LaGrange College.
