2017 Mission trip for youth and adults
July 16 - 21, 2017
Five middle school students and three adults headed to Duluth, Minnesota, Sunday, July 16 to be the hands and feet of Jesus. Youth Works will provided our housing at a local church. We served in a variety of ways such as helping with a VBS program, working in a banquet/soup kitchen, outreach for the homeless, companionship for the elderly who are homebound and even some small home repair for those in need.
Our mission work began right away Monday morning and concluded Thursday. Friday was a travel home day as well as our "fun" day with a stop at Valley Fair to spend the day riding rides and swimming at the waterpark before we returned home!
For the youth and adults this trip afforded us the opportunity to gain understanding and acceptance of people who live with circumstances unfamiliar to us. We all returned home enriched by the experience and ready to go again next year.
