Disciples.org has a nice article about our recent youth mission trip, working with a bunch of different churches and community organizations in northwest Arkansas. Here’s an excerpt:
As anyone who has participated in mission, it is the people that stick in the memory. A wonderful couple who lost their home in the Joplin tornado came to share their story with the group. Another Joplin resident shared stories of angels who showed up in the days immediately following the storm. A couple families whose playground had been repaired showed gratitude by providing popsicles and cold drinks. Removing brush from a yard brought a smile and a tear to an older woman who appreciated the help with chores her aging husband could no longer handle.
Head on over to read the full story.
I was very proud of our youth and how they represented their church. They worked hard. They did not complain. I hope we see in them a reminder for each of us to renew our call to use our hands and feet to make a difference in someone’s life.
