Amigo 21 registration deadline

 
Amigo 21.jpg
 

We are assembling the team for our Amigo 21 family mission trip to Children's Haven International in Reynosa, Mexico!

Our purpose to love God, love people, and lead others to do the same is both a local- and a global mission. We have a 20 year legacy of going as families to serve the ministry of Children's Haven International and now is the time for you to join for year 21.

This trip is a great way to put your faith into action and apply the Great Commission of Jesus outside of our “Jerusalem” as we

  • use our hands and feet (repairing and remodeling)

  • share our lives and the gospel with the children and staff

  • experience life in another culture

  • deepen our interaction with each other

  • get to know the Lord more intimately

Investing a week in service to those whom God cares deeply about will stretch us, give us a new appreciation for how much we have, and encourage us by the joyful hospitality we receive. 

You can find more information about schedule and cost on the brochure below. To register, fill out the form on the brochure and return to Pastor Steve Friesen in mailbox #178 by October 21, 2018.

Please pray about joining this adventure. We’d love to have you come along!
