BENEFITING: SOUTHBROOK CHRISTIAN CHURCH
Four of us Ittels, Chloe, Jake, Sherre, and Jerry are heading to Poland for a mission trip late summer of 2015. We are joining a larger team contingent from SouthBrook Christian Church that will be spending a week in Lodz Poland serving up acts of kindness in that city of nearly 1 million people.
We will be working at a week long event called, "Lodz Kontakt", which is billed by our polish friends as an "International Volunteer Festival". Our friends in Poland founded a ministry called "Proem" in 1990 after the walls of communism fell, and for 25 years they have been expanding their reach into their country. Check out their website at http://www.proemministries.org/
We are joining with Proem to simply help them establish a foothold of further ministry in the city of Lodz. The way we are doing this is by serving through the arts, sports, music, and construction renovation. SouthBrook is taking a team of coaches that will provide a youth basketball camp, a team of musicians that will offer free evening concerts, and a team of workers to renovate apartments in the Lodz gettos.
To get there we need your help. Each individual trip costs $2000. All totaled it's a pretty hefty price tag for our family. We are committed to contributing half the total amount needed from our own pockets. We're inviting you to join us in this worthy weeks activities and ultimately share in the blessing of generosity.
