During the first part of June, I traveled with students from our youth group on a mission trip to Sinton, Texas (a small town about 30 miles north of Corpus Christi). There we gathered with youth and adults from several churches to MPACT the community. MPACT stands for Making People Aware of Christ’s Truth. Youth groups from all over Texas spent the week painting houses, clearing brush and debris, and mowing lawns during the day and worshiping each evening.
It was a blessing to me, to the people we served, to the leadership of our host church, as well as to all the volunteers who paid (or took time away from work and families) to serve.
I created scrapbook pages from the pictures I captured during the week. I’m already looking forward to next year.
