EVENT DATE: May 29, 2012
HOURS PLEDGED: 100
Final Two Weeks
July 31, 2012
Well, Motown Mission has officially hosted the largest groups in our 8 year history...and we're still here to tell about it! We had a great couple weeks of 90+ and 130+ and learned a lot about hosting that many people in this building. We know our project partners were glad for all the hands, and that our volunteer meal donations were what really kept us going! Thanks so much for that! And thanks again to Metro UMC for their ongoing hosting ministry.
In the next two weeks we'll be completing our 2012 Summer season and the first twinges of sadness are starting to creep in. Just today I looked at some pictures from our training week and wondered what I would do without this great crew of Motown Mission and Metro Kidz staff. So much thanks to them and to all of their friends and family who have supported them this Summer.
Over and over I am reminded of what a blessing it is to see these amazing ministries underway and to see these young people leading them. Even as the crazyness of the Summer ensues (see new picture to the left :) the call of God for us as Christians to be transformed through service is made clear to me daily.
Thanks for being partners with us in this important work,
The TRANSFORMING LEADERS are college students who come to Detroit for 8 weeks in the Summer to serve in local ministries and non-profits, live in intentional Christian community, and discern God's call on their lives. Join in supporting these young people as they serve God by serving others!
