New Mexico Mission Trip
July 26 - July 30$100.00
July 26-30. Some people may leave Saturday, July 24, to get there early, worship at the church on Sunday, and begin setting up for our Bible Camp. The rest of us will leave Sunday July 25 after worship from Connections and should arrive by 7pm for a late dinner and team meeting. We will finish up camp on Thursday and clean up. Some folks may leave then. Others may depart Friday, planning for a stop at the Great Sand Dunes National Park.
We have some money in the budget to cover expenses. We may ask for some contribution to cover the costs of travel, food and supplies. Approximate total cost will be $100 due at the time of the trip.
The intention is to carpool together using participants vehicles. We’ll see what happens as our team comes together. Please plan to pack a lunch or buy food for yourself on the trip down, and back.
Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be provided Monday through Thursday.
We sleep in the church, on the floor. Cots are available. The church has showers and a kitchen.
Our host is the Jicarilla Reformed Church and Rev. Brad and Robin Kautz.
We will be running a “Bible Camp” for children on the reservation, Monday through Thursday. Breakfast is served at 8am. Camp runs from 9am to 12pm, with lunch served afterwards. (Getting a healthy meal is a big deal for most of these kids.) The afternoons are reserved for visitation, sightseeing and relaxation.
- We will definitely need help with running camp and ministering to the children.
- We will definitely need cooks to do shopping in advance and to oversee meal preparation for the team and the kids.
- There may be some need and opportunity for manual labor around the church facilities. Not sure yet.
