Mission has been a focus for our youth this summer. The INSPIRE Middle High youth spent a morning at Botanica helping with weeding and mulching and making one of the garden areas look incredible! After our project was done, we all spent some time in the gardens, had lunch and then went to the movies to make a full day of work and play.
We are only a couple of weeks away before our IGNITE Mission Trip team leaves for Cherokee Nation, NC for a week of service and worship with our friends from TeamEffort and other churches. We spend the week helping with home repairs, working with youth and spending worship time with God. This is an incredible experience for all, and one that bring us closer to God and each other.
To say we would not be able to do this without your support is an understatement. Because of you, we are able to make these experiences affordable for all youth and their families. Money should never be an obstacle for anyone to participate in God’s work, and because of your support we are able to open mission opportunities to anyone who wishes to join us.
I would ask one more sacrifice of you though, one that is much more important than the money: our youth need your prayers. Not just for the mission trips but for their everyday lives. There are many obstacles that can side track our youth, and only through prayer are we able to overcome and conquer. You are a great support for our youth, thank you.
