krutschTrail is an unincorporated community with houses spread along two rural highways. Logging was once the mainstay, but now the economy is largely geared to the tourists who come for the world-class fishing on the scenic Rogue River and those traveling to nearby Crater Lake National Park. Many people commute to Medford about 25 miles away for work. The majority of recent arrivals to the area are retirees from California. The school and fire department are located two miles from Trail in the larger town of Shady Cove, along with local businesses and several churches. Trail Community Church has been affiliated with Village Missions since 1973. It is a mostly older congregation, although a couple of young families have recently started attending. Just before we arrived in September, an area church closed its doors and many new people have made Trail their new church home since then. Around 80 people attend each week. There is a real interest in some of the men to begin a weekly discipleship program. Pray that this is able to get off the ground and that real spiritual growth will take place in the men and then in turn will impact their families.
