Join Mission del Sol as we road trip with the Prophet Elijah. Elijah is found in 1 and 2 Kings and was a prophet during a challenging time of Israel's history. As a Prophet of God he was asked to tell people hard things, perform miracles and be God's spokes person. Through this series we will see what happens when God takes the wheel in Elijah's life and in ours.

While you are out driving, listen to our Road Trip Playlist found on Spotify. Listen by clicking below.
While you are in the car, at restaurants or whenever your family is together take time to discuss some of these questions. Some are silly, others are important and some make you think. Have fun and have everyone in your family answer the questions.
Serving God happens everywhere, even on a road trip. Serving God happens doing ordinary things for the people you love. Write each family member's name and add other people in your community on a slip of paper. Have everyone draw a name each week. During the week try and do something to serve that person.
Ideas to Serve Others:
- Take out the trash.
- Make a card for someone who might be lonely.
- Play with someone who you don't normally play with.
- Pick up trash in your neighborhood.
- Listen to someone's story.
- Make someone laugh
- Give a hug to someone who needs it.
- Help make dinner
- Clean up the living room.
- Leave an uplifting note for someone to find.
- Take out the trash.
This is a finger labyrinth patterned after the walking labyrinth in the floor of Chartres Cathedral in France. A finger labyrinth is “walked” by tracing the path with a finger of the non-dominant hand. As you trace your finger towards the center pray for others. When you reach the center listen to God. As you trace your way out pray for yourself.
This summer we are going on a road trip. But we are not headed to cooler climates or just on a fun adventures. Instead we are joining the Prophet Elijah on his road trip. A prophet is someone who is called by God to proclaim God's message. He is basically God's spokesperson. Sometimes God tells Elijah to say things that people don't want to hear, sometimes he is asked to stand up for what is right, and other time he has to help others. Elijah's job is really hard.
Has God ever asked you to act like a prophet and stand up for what is right? What message do you think God would want you to share?
