On June 16 nine members of our youth group along with Larry Johnson and Laura Morris traveled to Raleigh, N.C. with YouthWorks for five days to be the hands and feet of Christ. On Wednesday, September 4, the participants in this mission trip will share pictures and stories about what they accomplished for Christ and highlight the work and fellowship that took place on this trip.
As you hear humorous tales and possibly some of Mr. Johnson’s slight exaggerations, I want you to know that it was your generosity that made this trip possible for our youth. Through the donations you made at the Children’s Musical and the funds that you placed in the baskets after a Sunday service, you made it possible for our youth to participate in a life-changing event. That’s a big deal. The cost of participation and travel is a large part of the youth budget and it took a substantial showing of altruism to ensure that this vital ministry opportunity be available to anyone who desires to serve.
Please know that your continuing support of UBC’s Youth Ministry has been inspiring and that your kind words, prayers, and financial support have been an ENORMOUS blessing to both the youth and myself.
