As the new year approached we began to think about what direction God would have us follow. There are so many are still suffering from job loss caused by the pandemic that has crippled our world and our personal lives as well.
We would never imagine we would say our earthly goodbyes to our precious friend Rev. Terry Whitesides. He was a man of integrity, a wonderful man of God. We ministered together in so many areas. God sure blessed us to have such a kind, compassionate friend. He has gone on to receive his Heavenly reward but we will never forget our friend Terry Whitesides.
March: We just returned from a mission trip to Pennington Gap, VA, where we along with 28 SC volunteers offered support of food, blankets, shoes, socks, and jackets to the local people living at or below the US poverty level. We partnered with Harber Pentecostal Church. The church helped sponsor this event that included music and a hot dog lunch. We also had a prayer/Bible where 8 people prayed the prayer of faith to accept Christ.
We are collecting items for flood victims in Kentucky. Clay City, KY was hit hard by the worst flooding since 1978; over half the town was covered with flood waters. Hundreds of people have been left without a home and all their belonging washed down river or covered in mud. Everything they worked for gone.
Please help us help them with the following items:
Paper products - diapers, wipes, trash bags
Items can be dropped off at Cooper Jones Furniture, 1 Bessie Rd, Piedmont, SC 29673. Drop off times are Mon-Sat from 9:30am until 4:00pm.

The above listed events are only part of our several mission outreaches during the year. We receive several calls a year for families who have lost all their belongings to a fire or other tragic events. We help single parents, grandparents or families and the elderly by provide things of need. We donate clothes, shoes, socks, food, personal care items, and small household items to those requesting assistance

As we look back on this year, so many things are different and have been handled in ways we never dreamed possible. One of the first challenges in the mission building was not having work days. This was very hard on our team as we were so accustomed to meeting every Tuesday to join in fellowship while working in the mission building.
Then along came the tornadoes to SC and really hit Seneca SC very hard. We knew there was a great need as so many were hurting. Our team made up bags of personal care items, diapers, gloves, and food bags. We along with a few churches gloved and masked up to hand out these items. We also set up a Bible/Prayer table to minister to those in need of prayers and encouragement. So many in this area are still displaced and in need. The mission continues to send food and other items to share with those still suffering the effects of the economy from Covid19 and the tornadoes. And when a local ministry sets up to feed the local people some of our team goes to set up to pray and give away Bibles.
AUGUST: Our mission team held two back to school giveaways, while practicing the guidelines set up by the CDC. Several hundred back packs full of supplies, clothes, shoes, and socks were giving away; as well as lunch. Along with a worship service and puppets; several prayed the prayer of faith to accept Christ.
NOVEMBER: "DAY OF BLESSINGS" in Slater Marietta, SC. We were able to serve 500 guest while social distancing and wearing mask. We had local talent from Pelzer, SC singing gospel music while our guest waited their turn. Each person attending received a coat, a pair of shoes, socks, personal care items, as well as blankets and food boxes. We also partnered with several local groups and churches to make this an outstanding event.
DECEMBER: This year we partnered with several in our community to help make Christmas a little brighter for over 140 children. Seventy (70) of these children were sponsored by individuals in our area, with each child receiving clothes, shoes, a coat, and toys. Each family received a gift card for groceries. And seventy (70) of the children were sponsored by the mission through generous donations from local people in our surrounding areas. Each child received the same gifts as the individually sponsored children along with a food box for the family. We also donated toys to children in Seneca, SC who are still suffering from the loss caused by last year’s tornadoes.
December 31, 2019
As this year comes to an end we have so many great things to share with you and all of our mission partners and friends. Without God's provisions and your generosity the mission would not be able to supply the items to those needing assistance.
Here locally in May our team along with several local churches and organizations set up at Tom Pack Ball Field for a day of family fun and fellowship. This day is set up all free of charge with games, bounce houses, singing, gifts and a free meal. We had 175 guests attending along with several volunteers.
We made several trips to KY during the past year to deliver clothes, shoes, food, and back packs full of school supplies. These were delivered to different mission houses and churches, were they set up giveaways and hand delivery items to those living at or below the poverty level.
In August the mission partnered with The Servants Closet in KY to supply several hundred pairs of shoes, socks and backpacks. This event also included a family fun day of snacks, snow cones, cotton candy and bounce houses. Several people accepted Christ during the church service and at the prayer table.
Our annual Fall Outreach for 2019 was held in Clay City, KY. We had 100 volunteers from SC and 2 from NC this year on the trip, from 15 different churches. Our day began at Full Gospel Lighthouse with 300 guests for preaching, music, singing, praising and many came forward to accept Christ, and prayers for the sick. God's Holy Spirit was felt during the church service and many were blessed. Each person attending received coats, shoes, socks, caps, gloves, blankets, clothes, Bibles and groceries. Everyone attending received a free hot dog lunch and all the children received a snack bag full of goodies. After the event we shared with three Kentucky ministries, items they gave away to their communities and families for Christmas.
On December 14th our team along with five other local churches set up a Day of Blessings at Piedmont Church of God. We had 250 guests attending the event, 32 people accept Christ and over 50 volunteers. Our day began with all our guest joining us in the sanctuary for a time of music, preaching, and our teen drama team. Then our guest proceeded to the outer buildings to receive many goods, including free shoes, ladies personal care items, coats, socks, caps, gloves, toys, groceries, Bibles, and blankets. Everyone received a free meal to take home. We were so thankful for all of the mission team and volunteers coming together to help make this event a success.
Our next project for December was to help 120 children in our surrounding area receive Christmas gifts; they otherwise would not have been able to receive. We had 51 children sponsored and we really appreciate all our sponsors who helped make this happen. We also appreciate South Side Baptist Church for hosting a Christmas party for all the children and their families. The event began with a service in the sanctuary with Christmas music and preaching. The children joined us in the fellowship building for a fun time with learning the true Christmas story from our puppet team. The children really had a blast getting a visit from Santa and receiving fun gifts.
We have also helped many families replace their belongings that were lost in a fire. And we have donated to help our local school Sue Cleveland with school supplies, and personal care items.
We started our first "Blessing Box", located on Hwy 20 Piedmont. You may wonder what a Blessing Box is. Well it's a water proof plastic box were we placed nonperishable food items everyday to help alleviate hungry in our community. People are invited to "take what you need, leave what you can, and be blessed" If you would like to contribute to the box come by anytime and drop off food items located at Cooper Jones Furniture 1 Bessie Rd Piedmont, SC.
It has been a busy year and we thank each and every one that has contributed in any way to the mission. If you donated items, money or your time volunteering or have said a prayer for the team we really appreciate all of the help that allows us to help others.
So as year fifteen comes to a close in missions for Appalachian Ministries of The Carolinas please be in prayer as we wait for God's direction where He would have for the ministry team.
May God bless you as you bless others, and work together for His Kingdom and all for His Glory!
In His Service,

2019 Kentucky Flooding
2019 Kentucky Flooding
March 1, 2019
On February 25,2019 we were contacted by Dana Watson of The Servant's Closet concerning a local community in Leslie KY stranded by flood waters. Thankfully he already had a load of food for the people in need of assistance. He contacted the local Sheriff in Hyden, KY and they along with the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife were able to go by boat to deliver food and water. They delivered food and water for four days. As of date the water is not expected to recede for 2 or 3 weeks.

2016 Piedmont Family Fun Day
2016 Piedmont Family Fun Day
May 23, 2016
The Community Fun Day was held at the Tom Pack Memorial Field in Piedmont, SC. There were 15 different booths provided by the mission team along with local churches, ministries, and civic groups. We enjoyed a day of gospel music, food, fun, games, free door prizes and fellowship. Each person received a free hot dog lunch and BBQ sandwiches. This was a great day! And a blessing to see the Christian community come together in one accord to praise Jesus and to reach out to those in need of a spiritual up lifting. There were 16 professions of Faith, and many received prayers for other needs they presented. We were also blessed to see a local minister come by and share with us his ministry of "The Cross". He travels to surrounding communities presenting Christ and how He shed His blood for our sins.
We were excited to receive the news of each church and group wanting this to be an annual event for our community. So, please be prepared to hear from us again in the coming year to prepare another Community Family Fun Day. To God be The Glory!
January 1, 2016
As we look back over this past year, we are reminded of how much God loves us and has blessed His ministry. There were times of great joy and times of wonderful gladness. We also experienced times when we realized it was only by our Faith, and Hope in Him as our only means of survival. God has brought us through and we give Him honor and praise. Our team would like to share with you some exciting mission trips during 2015.
It is because of giving friends like you and others the ministry was able to share Christ with the less fortunate, the hurting and those longing for someone to show they care.

Some of our mission friends went to the St Charles, VA school and donated 170 filled stockings, fruit bags and pajamas. And the staff of the school also received gifts.
We have been going to the Appalachian Mountain Region for 11 years. The mission outreach (Day of Blessings) is where we invite the people of surrounding communities near a local church. We set up ministry in the local church, where there is preaching, singing, testifying, and a puppet ministry for the children. After a time of ministering God's Word, we invite our guest to "shop" free, for much needed items.
Each family has their own personal guide who goes with them throughout the day, helps them shop while sharing the love of Christ with them. Consisting but not limited to the following: coats, jackets, shoes, socks, stocking caps, hats, gloves, clothes, new blankets and food. New moms or expecting moms receive a diaper bag loaded with supplies and diapers. We also bless the children with the same items and a back pack full of school supplies, a small toy, and a snack bag of items they don't often receive. Our guests also enjoy a free bagged hot dog lunch. This year we had free face painting for the children and they really enjoyed that treat.
The Family Fun Days consist of some of the same items, along with games with prizes and bounce house. The families enjoy these days as this is something they rarely enjoy. We also make several trips during the year to local mission houses and or churches to deliver items collected. These missions or churches invite the local people to come pick up items they need. The mission also has people that go out into the homes and deliver the items to those needing assistance.
So, as we have closed out the year 2015, preparations have already begun for a new and exciting year of ministry. We look forward to partnering with you and our many mission friends. So, if you would like to be a part of this ongoing ministry, please contact us for more information. You can also make monetary donations on this site or mail to 209 Pineview Dr Pelzer, SC 29669.

The Harts and Appalachian Ministries of the Carolinas Team
Dear Mission Friends,
Thanks to you, hundreds of men, women, boys, and girls were able to enjoy the warmth of a new blanket, this past winter. They also received a coat, shoes, socks, gloves and hats to help keep them warm when outside in the cold. They were so grateful and appreciated the kindness shown to them during the harsh winter they endure on a yearly basis.
Over four hundred seventy five children grades K4 thru grades 12, received backpacks full of much needed school supplies. The children were all smiles to receive the gift of supplies to help them in the classroom during the school year. The children also received a small gift and goodie bags, as these are items they rarely get to enjoy.
Your gifts have allowed us to minister and share the love of Jesus with local homeless individuals. Where our groups, along with other ministries have provided food, clothes, and items of warmth, tarps, and tents to the people left to survive in harsh conditions.
We continue to support several local food ministries and The Appalachian Mountain Region food ministries with monetary donations on a monthly basis. During the food distributions along with other outreach ministry over two hundred people have come to know Jesus and experience His love and grace.
We are preparing for this year mission trips; one is to be held September 11 & 12, 2015.
We are going to The Church of God in St. Charles, VA and surrounding communities. During this trip we will give free of charge items of warmth, clothes, food, shoes, socks, back packs (full of school supplies), toys, diapers, and baby items. Several years ago this was a thriving coal mining town where people worked hard to support their families. Now the jobs are gone, the stores are closed and the people thru no fault of their own are in need of assistance for basic daily needs.
The other mission trip is to Crossroads Baptist Church in Brevard, NC. Where we will have a “Back to School” family fun day. This day of fun consist of bounce house, games, snack bags, clothes, shoes and back packs full of much needed school supplies. In this area there are a lot of families living at or below the poverty level. The church has a food ministry and helps local people with their food needs on a continual basis.
During all of the outreach mission trips, our guest enjoy music, singing, puppets for the children and sharing of God’s word. Every person attending is given a Bible of their own.
There is a Gideon, a Pastor, Elder, or Deacon at this table to pray upon request for all our guests attending. They also can place a prayer request in the prayer box.
Several of our team members are involved locally in their home churches with food
ministries, children ministry and homeless ministry, among other type ministries. Appalachian Ministries of The Carolinas helps support some of these local outreach events. We are excited to join with a ministry in Greenville, SC help provide food for the homeless and sharing the love of Christ.
If you would like to be a part of this ministry, please contact us for more information.
We look forward to experiencing what God has in store for this ministry in the coming years. He has blessed the ministry in the past eleven years and we are excited for the future. We appreciated our continued partnership with you, our mission friends. We are thankful He has entrusted us to be His hands and His feet, to spread God’s love and share His kindness.
Thank you for all you do. And may God bless you as you bless others.

GOD BLESSED US WITH A BUILDING IN SEPTEMBER
We were so thankful to have the mission building completed. This will allow us to work on mission items and serve in a more effective manner. Please consider helping us fill up this building with mission items to share with others. Also if you would like to help work in the building sorting, sizing, and boxing items please let us know.
TO GOD BE THE GLORY!!!!!!!
Dear Mission Friends
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your help, hard work and prayers for our recent mission trips. And would like to share how the items donated by people of kindness like you were distributed.
Our yearly mission trip was to Cawood, KY Church of God, and other surrounding communities. We arrived on October 5th with 5 trailer loads of much needed items for the “Day of Blessings” outreach to begin on October 6th. First our guest, 350 people, entered the church for a time of worship, singing, testifying, and puppets for the children and sharing of God’s Word. We were so blessed to witness several confessed salvations, as well as people coming up to the alter seeking Gods help. Later at the bible table ten of our guest accepted Jesus into their heart. Our team members prayed with them as they gave in their request for the prayer box. Please continue to keep these folks in your daily prayers, as they have many needs.
After the evangelistic part of the day, our guest proceeded outside for these items: Coats, jackets, gloves, caps, shoes, socks, diaper bags, school supplies, toys, goodie bags for the kids, bibles, blankets, and nonperishable foods and 5lb bag of potatoes. Each person enjoyed a hot dog lunch, prepared by the local church.
The trailers were reloaded with leftover items and a 16ft trailer was delivered to Mac’s Rescue Mission, located on Pine Mountain in Kentucky, to be given away on Fridays. And a 20ft trailer was delivered to Burdine KY Church of God of Prophecy, the items were given away at a distribution on Oct. 20th, with two confessed salvations, praise God.
Upon returning from Cawood, we received a call from Joyce with Sky Bound Mission (Lord Jesus Church), requesting our help. They were in much need of items for the winter, including items for children, babies and food. After contacting our mission friends we were able to fill a 12 foot trailer. We left the day after Thanksgiving to deliver to Yeaddis, KY we were so blessed to see the smiles of the children and adults receiving the items. One lady brought tears to my eyes by saying “thank you for feeding us”, what a blessing to know God allowed us to be a part of bringing a bit of hope to this community.
After checking the items we had left, we had enough adult coats, gloves, and socks to give to the homeless in Greenville, SC also blankets and coats in the Pelzer, SC area. It seems God keeps on multiplying the items collected and He allows our mission team to be His hands reaching out to others.
All these communities are in much need and have many people living at or below the US poverty level. We may never know the magnitude our efforts play in making a difference in their lives. But, we would like to think we have helped shed a little light into the darkness and let them know God loves them and so do we.
May God continue to use all of us working together to make those less fortune, be fed, be warmer and have a little less sadness. Looking forward to more exciting news as we all work together for His Kingdom this New Year and years to follow.

2012 Kentucky Tornado Relief
2012 Kentucky Tornado Relief
We were saddened to hear of the recent tornadoes and the destruction that hit Kentucky and the surrounding areas on March 3rd, 2012. Lives were lost, many people were injured, and homes, churches, businesses and schools were damaged beyond repair. People lost things that can never be replaced, things money just can't buy. Family photos, family heirlooms, treasures saved for a lifetime, only to be gone in a matter of minutes.
As the news began to reach us of the needs in these areas, we went to work collecting items of relief for the communities in the hard hit areas of Kentucky. First we sent out messages to our team members, local businesses, friends, churches, and our community. A 20 foot trailer was loaded and delivered to Salyersville, KY on Monday, March 12th. It really amazes us as to how God works through all different types of people to come together, and help meet the needs of hurting people. Items delivered were blankets, tarps, trash bags, personal care items, diapers, baby wipes, food, drinks, work gloves, etc.
When we arrived and saw the damage to the town, and communities, our hearts were really sad. To think the people who once had a home, a roof over their head, beds, the comforts of home, their homes are now a memory.
One man (a Pastor of a local church) told how he secured his family in the bathtub, just as the tornado came he ran to join them in the bathroom. Every room in the home was destroyed, the roof, the walls gone, but, by the Grace of God, the room they were in had NO damage. Praise God! I asked him was there anything we could do to help him, or if there was an immediate need and he said smiling "no thanks, just glad to be alive, praise God." This really touched my heart, because even in the mist of the storm God is there, even when the home is gone, everything lost, He is there. Even when we think no one cares, He is there. And to think a man can Praise God, and know where his strength lies, he knows God will take care of him and his family. What a mighty God we serve.
Please continue to be in prayer for all the tornado victims. We will be collecting more items, (no clothes at this time, please, as they don't have a place to store them).
Please check our website often for updates on this mission outreach. And ask God were He can use you next!
