Upsidedown Kingdom: Expect the Unexpected Let’s overturn the ordinary and exceed expectations, hope for what is coming, and be part of what is here!
Twenty-two Mount Olivet junior high school students and adults will travel to Duluth in July to work with our host organization, YouthWorks. Participants will serve at a variety of service sites, participate in urban learning experiences, and dwell and worship together. YouthWorks spends many months connecting in the community to insure that our missionaries are meeting true needs and will be making an impact, while also having the chance to connect with one another in safe environments. Possible service sites include local food shelves,clothing distribution centers, soup kitchens, summer children/youth programs, and elderly care facilities.
Some of MO past participants’ favorite activities have been:
- Connecting with local children and youth
- Prepping, serving and “cleaning up” meals
- Experiencing the diversity of the local community through cultural presentations and shared meals
- End the of week foot washing
How can those of us staying at home continue to support and encourage the Mission Trip participants?
The wonderful financial support from the MO community, through MissionStock, Lenten Suppers and the Flower Sale Fundraiser is greatly appreciated! Beyond that, participants ask for prayers. Notes of encouragement are welcome as well. Mission trips are emotionally and physically exhausting, and it is nice to be reminded that people are prayerfully supporting participants.
