For most of us, living in a home with a warm bed to get into at night, a hot meal to enjoy at dinner, and an understanding that our basic needs are met, are taken for granted. This isn't true for everyone. Almost 60,000 families with children are homeless on any given night in the United States.
In June 2019, 24 students and 6 adult leaders from Our Savior's Lutheran Church in Stillwater, MN will be traveling across the country to Portland, OR. During our time there, we will be serving the homeless community. We will be serving in homeless shelters, food shelves, a clothing distribution center, and a soup kitchen. We may also have the opportunity to participate in a community cookout for up to 400 people needing a warm meal. We will be engaging in humble conversations with them, listening to their stories, and sharing the love of Christ with them. Our mission trip will do much to change our understanding of wealth and necessities.
This mission trip is also an opportunity for us to deepen our personal relationship with God. We will be sharing intimate stories with one another, we will be praying for each other, and we will be praising God together.
We ask for your prayers as we embark on this journey and spread God's love to our brothers and sisters.
