It's been at least a decade that anyone from our church has gone on a mission trip. We're a small church with a big heart, and predominantly aging congregation. "Let's see how God might lead us next?," the pastor preached. We anticipated taking a team of 5 on the youth mission trip this summer in June to work repairing where Hurricane Harvey hit. Instead, there are at least 12 people ready to pack their bags and go be the hands and feet of Christ in the world. Consider how you might help solve the wonderful problem of underanticipating the number of young people interested and help make this dream a realitiy.
One participant costs $235. We have 12.
One van costs $956. We now need two.
Gas, a first aid kit, a cleaning kit costs around $750.
