Below is some information about the mission trip to Guatemala that some of the men of our church will be going on this coming April. The info-meeting referred to has already happened, but the contact information is still good and it is definitely not too late to learn more and/or sign up, though space is limited. (Just to be clear: this mission trip is open to any and all men at Southside… though, as I said, space is limited.)
PS – One of the best and most inspiring messages I ever heard on missions was by John Piper. You can read or listen to the message by clicking here.
Grace and Truth,
Have you been looking for a way to put your faith in action? Has God begun to give you a heart to serve? Do you desire to deepen your relationship with God by sharing His love with others?
Then we’ve got a trip for you!
The Baxter Boys men’s ministry here at Southside is sponsoring a mission trip to Guatemala on April 21-29 of 2012. We will be involved in a construction project with the Mission2Guatemala team–the ministry our youth have worked with over the past few years–and will stay at their center in Chisek. The cost of the trip will be $1500 per person which includes airfare, living expenses in Guatemala, and construction materials for the project. A deposit of $400 will be due by January 15, and we hope to offset the rest by fundraising.
We will have an exploratory meeting on Wednesday, December 14 at 5:45 PM in the Family Life Center main area. We will discuss the trip, pass out the FAQ sheets from M2G and plan fund raising. If you have any questions or are interested but cannot attend, contact David Preston at firstname.lastname@example.org or 616-6817. You don’t have to be a “Baxter Boy,” just a man of God willing to rise up and go forth in His name. See you on the 14th!
