NORTHPORT, AL (WBRC) -

A group of teenagers is wrapping up a week of service in the Tuscaloosa area.

The students have traveled hundreds of miles to Alabama. Something else that is unique about the group is that the students are all deaf or hard of hearing.

The students are part of a program called Deaf Teen Quest, which is part of the Youth for Christ ministry. The students pay their own way to come on the trip and complete projects like painting and home repair during their stay.

The group visiting West Alabama includes students from Louisville, Kentucky, and Indianapolis, Indiana, among other cities.

Group leader Marva Sellers, who is also hearing-impaired, said Deaf Teen Quest is about sharing the Christian faith through service.

"We are serving, this is a service project," Sellers said. "Just giving and helping and serving in whatever way the community needs, that's really what this is about."
