I leave Sunday for the third and final mission trip of the summer. This time around I’m heading out with my youth to Atlanta, Georgia, for a week of service at the Moncrief Center. We will be spending each day working with about 60 children in grades kindergarten – fifth grade. Most of the children are Hispanic children that live close to the Moncrief Center. They provide many ministries throughout the year. During the summer, groups come for a week and prepare different activities and lessons to both teach the children and have fun.
Each evening the youth also sing at various locations – churches, senior centers, hospitals, homeless shelters. They are basically busy from 8 am – 8 pm.
I’m taking 34 youth and 14 adults along for the journey. We are so excited to spend time together as a youth family as well. On Saturday, we will be touring the Coca-Cola Museum and the Georgia Aquarium. Some of the youth are headed to a Braves/Mets game. Watch it on Fox! Those ants way in the balcony? That will be them.
Thanks for your prayers for our trip! We appreciate all the prayers that we can get. I’ll be posting updates from the trip on our website at http://www.refugeonline.org. Check there throughout the week to see and hear about our amazing week!
