A mission team scrapes and power washes a wall before painting a house on Walnut Street Monday during Madison Mission Week. The mission involves members from several area churches working together to do repair work on three homes, on Walnut Street, Crestwood Drive and County Road 450-W for residents in need. Also, the participants in Madison Mission Week are gaining the experience of what a mission trip away from Madison is like as they spend the weeknights lodging at Madison Consolidated High School.
