Check out this article written by Walter Crouch, the President and CEO of ASP. Many of you will remember Mr Crouch was here this past fall, to celebrate with us, our 40th Anniversary of participating in ASP-Appalachia Service Project. Note one correction: Mr Crouch refers to the hymn we sing as the ASP team returns and processes into the sanctuary as “Here I Am, Send Me.” The official name of the hymn is “Here I Am, Lord” “ASP Can Still Touch Your Life”
