This year we are planning to offer a fall mission trip to assist fellow Floridians in rebuilding their homes and lives after surviving Hurricane Irma. All skill and experience levels are welcome. The costs will be minimal, as we will be staying on cots in a church, preparing our own meals and will not have any construction fees. Teams will work Monday – Friday. The Conference Disaster response office will likely deploy us in Southwest Florida and we will serve where we are most needed.
We will have an informational meeting from 6–7:30 p.m. Monday, April 8 in Hyde Park’s Knox Hall Room 150. To RSVP, click here.
Please invite anyone who might be interested.
While we have enjoyed a long and meaningful partnership with El Ayudante in Nicaragua, due to continuing civil unrest, we are not planning a church-sponsored mission trip there this year.
While praying about what we might do this year instead, we were made aware of the tremendous damage and ongoing needs for rebuilding due to Hurricane Irma in our very own state. Suddenly it became very obvious where we were being called and how we could respond.

If you are interested in local one-day projects, contact Vicki Walker and she can connect you to those opportunities.
There is still an opportunity to serve with El Ayudante if you are interested in going on your own. El Ayudante is offering trips June 29 – July 6, and July 6 – July 13, 2019. Click here for more information where you can sign up directly with them.
