Over the last couple of weeks, our Middle School and High School students have led the way in serving and volunteering during their mission trips to Minneapolis and Osceola! Such a fantastic way to live out the Bible’s instructions to care for those who live in fear of violence and poverty. Our youth learned about the importance of food (by helping on the farm and providing produce for the Mobile Market) and the importance of relationships, fun, and education (by spending time at Urban Ventures).
Sometimes we need to step out of our comfort zone or our neighborhood to experience something new or something different. It’s where we can see God moving in new ways, learn how we can be used by Him and the mission he has for us. Each time I volunteer and get outside of my neighborhood (suburban Minnesota living) I’m grateful. Grateful for my home. Grateful for my family. Grateful for the opportunity to meet people who challenge my prejudices and ways of thinking. Grateful that God’s grace is abundant and every day His mercies are new.
There are many opportunities for you to get out of your neighborhood this summer and fall!
There’s the family mission trip to the farm that starts on Friday. Pray for these families and their time serving!
Crave is going to the farm on Saturday, July 26th. You can join HERE.
Serve His Kids is hosting their next mission trip to Reynosa, Mexico, October 11-19th.
Grab your Bible and your sense of adventure and join us over the river, through the woods or over the border!
