Mission New Mexico

When:
May 31-June 4. Some people may leave Saturday, May 30, 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 after worship from Connections and should arrive by 7pm for a late dinner and team meeting. We will depart Thursday after camp ends.

Cost:
Nothing! Well, not exactly. We’ve budgeted for the cost of running camp. Your “expense” is your time and service which is what really makes this happen.

Travel:
The plan 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.

Meals:
Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be provided Sunday night through Thursday lunch.

Accommodations:
We sleep in the church. We have cots. Bring a fan. Or drive an RV. We’re flexible.

Who:
Our host is the Jicarilla Reformed Church and Rev. Brad and Robin Kautz.

What:
We will be running a “Vacation Bible School” for children on the reservation, Monday through Thursday. Breakfast is served at 8 am. Camp runs from 9 am to 12 pm, with lunch served afterwards. (Getting a healthy meal is a big deal for most of these kids.) The afternoons are reserved for visitation, sight-seeing and relaxation.

Needs:

  • 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.
