In July our senior high youth will be participating in the mission ministry of our church by serving a church community in Niagara Falls, New York. The projects, yet to be finally determined, may consist of helping with teaching Bible school, painting, yardwork or serving dinners. The mission group will conduct a worship service for the First Presbyterian Church, Lockport, NY.

This opportunity to serve is possible because of the close relationship Todd and Wendy Whittard have established with the church’s pastor.  This trip is the second time Mission del Sol youth have gone on the New York mission trip. Past participants have felt deeply touched by the spiritual growth opportunity to serve others, to pray together, and to learn together.

Accompanying our youth will be Todd, Wendy and Smith Graham. There is an opportunity for another adult woman to participate. Is God calling you to be a chaperone? Please pray about that and contact Wendy through the church office if you are called to join the mission group.

What else can you do now? Please start praying for these, our New York missionaries! Thank each person for their responding to this invitation to serve.  And be alert for other requests which will come, such as being a prayer partner for each group member or preparing a care bag for each person. More to come!
