MT19 has a wonderful group of 19 kids, biggest group so far, that are in full swing of getting ready for our new location. If you have not heard our original site of Sommerville, TN was cancelled, and we needed to find a new work site to attend, not the news we were expecting before Thanksgiving!
We are blessed to have found Lutherhaven Ministries in beautiful Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. This is a bible camp setting that also has a site that does mission work in the community. The kids will be part of Idaho Servant Adventures. The kids will work hands-on with the local community but also spend a day helping keep the camp up for younger Lutheran kids in the area to attend bible camp. The week we are there in June is the Champ Camp for kids with disabilities. We are excited to serve the camp and the community. We will be heading west on June 20 to show the kids some sites and have some bonding time together before arriving at our work site on June 23. We will serve the community and worship together with around 100 other youth during the week.
MT19 has been so blessed with the support of the church family and community in our fundraising efforts so far. We had a successful craft sale in November, and a fun craft night in December, watch for another one in the future. We served a very wonderful breakfast after the amazing Cantata.
So many new friends to meet and serve God with. Group Mission Trips are faith based so we will still be having that element in this trip too. We will be needing a firm commitment so we can calculate the budget in the next two weeks. So please, if you have any questions at all ask one of us leaders, and with that I am very happy to say that Ben Pany has also decided to come along with us this year. So you may ask any one of us any questions you many have. Your trip leaders: Michelle – 320-293-4375, Donelle – 612-219-9023, James – 612-670-7066 or Ben – 612-695-7597.
