Carpentry Work

3rd Saturdays

Ministering to those in our community who are needy or elderly by helping with home repairs, yard work, and much more.


We have a crew of very skilled workers, with a larger portion of us (non skilled) who have a servant's heart and willing hands.   We also have numerous other projects being put on hold until we have more people to help.  People who are willing to sit and talk with some of our clients while the repairs are being made are needed as well.


It's very helpful to know who can participate, so we can plan work teams.  However, you can just show up at Mt. Zion on Saturday at 8:30 am .  Please email our coordinator Mike Arnold at  to let him know you are planning on coming.  Also, let him know if you have any skills in painting, construction, electrical, plumbing, etc. 


 ~ You will be blessed serving with this Local Mission. We hope you will join our team.

ICO (Inner County Outreach) 2021 Summer Camp and After-School Program

The six week/5 days a week ICO summer camp is finished for the 2021 year. There were 95 campers, mostly from Aberdeen. The camp was available to the entire community. The cost was minimal, scholarships were provided where needed. Each week consisted of 2 days devoted to academics, 2 days for swimming, sports and games, and at least one field trip. The academic portion consisted of reading, math, history, music and Christian values. Cindy Sepulveda and I co-led 4 book groups divided by age. We had some great, stimulating discussion on the books the children were reading. It was a lot of fun, especially with so much participation from the children.


The After-School Program begins on September 20 for 35 students from Aberdeen’s 5 public schools. The program is open to all residents of Aberdeen. Transportation is provided from the schools. Upon arrival, the kids have snacks and then complete their homework. Volunteers help the children with math and reading problems. Mt Zion, as well as individuals, have provided excellent instructional and supplementary educational materials and books. When finished, they can play games.

Before the Covid virus shut schools down, 7 volunteers came from Mount Zion. We are hopeful that once again we’ll have volunteers from Mt Zion. The kids are motivated, friendly and well behaved. Usually volunteers come for one, partial-afternoon per week, focusing on the age group and/or subject interest. Of course, you can always volunteer for more!

The high school kids arrive at ICO about 2:15. If they need assistance, it’s usually with higher level math.

The middle school children arrive about 3:15. If needing help, it’s also usually math…algebra or geometry.

The majority of the children are K-5 elementary students, arriving at 4:00. Many need reinforcement and strengthening of their reading and writing skills. They also need help with common core math. If you’re assisting with math and not sure how the new math works, we can give you immediate help as you’re working with the child. It’s usually not that difficult to figure out.

At 5:30 the Aberdeen Bible Church provides the children with dinner, then take them home.

In addition to the after-school program, there are additional ICO community programs available for volunteers.

If you would like to volunteer for the new school year, or have any questions, please contact me

Children of Zion Village- Namibia, Africa

The Children of Zion Village was originally established as a Christian home for orphans of the AIDS pandemic in the southern African nation of Namibia. It is located along the Zambezi River in the northeast corner of Namibia. Our children come from several different tribal and language groups.

The “village” opened in January, 2003 and is now home to about 50 children. In the beginning, most of the children were placed in our care because they had lost their parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles to AIDS. Today children may be placed with us for a variety of reasons. They may be orphaned because of AIDS or other illness, or may have become vulnerable because of parental illness, incarceration, poverty, neglect, or human trafficking.

Here the boys and girls receive love, nutrition, shelter, healthcare, academic, vocational and Bible education, and become part of one large Christian family. Our missionaries, volunteers, and Namibian staff work together to raise the children in our “village”.

After establishing and operating our school for our own children for several years we found that there was a great need among non-vulnerable children in our community for a Christian education. In obedience to “The Great Commission” we expanded our school to also invite local children from the community to join with our children in receiving a quality Christian education.

Matt Bohlman - Orphanage in Cambodia​

The nation of Cambodia continues to emerge from the mass genocide of the Khmer Rouge that killed approximately 3 million of its citizens. Beset with extreme poverty, the widespread pandemic of AIDS, and amidst the dangers of human trafficking, hundreds of thousands of children is left to sift through refuse and garbage to survive.  In the city of Siem Reap, the Bob and Clara Pace Orphanage was established to meet this great need.


The home was initially started in 2005. “People for Care and Learning” and “Men and Women of Action” built the beautiful compound. The current staff, led by Director Matt Bohlman, provides excellent care for 27 children, as well as provides meals and youth programming for hundreds each week.

From MZ to WV- Wharncliffe, WV.

In 2006 Mt. Zion began a partnership with the community of Wharncliffe, WV.  Mt Zion supports Wharncliffe’s emergency food pantry year round. Mt. Zion partners with the Wharncliffe community volunteers to hold a community Christmas gathering as well as an annual Vacation Bible School and Back-to-School supply drive.  Most importantly we partner with Wharncliffe to share the love and hope of Jesus.  We build relationships between Mt. Zion and Wharncliffe and we are all tremendously blessed by each other.

Benedict and Kathleen Schwartz - Villages of Hope

In 2004, Benedict Schwartz answered a calling to create orphan villages in Africa. Benedict’s vision was to create a model that would provide children living in these villages with the knowledge and skills to succeed as adults and to create an economically sustainable community. This would be done by giving them hands-on experiences in jobs.


Benedict saw a great need in the country of Zambia, which has 1.6 million orphans. In 2006, 230 acres were purchased there to start the Villages of Hope. Since then, the village has accomplished the following: taken in at-risk children who have no one else to care for them, started several medium-sized businesses to financially support the village, and founded the School of Hope. The Village of Hope is located in the Chibomba District 50 kilomoters north of Lusaka.
