This year as we approach the 2018 Youth Mission Trip, God is showing us that there is so much more to missions than just the work. It's about building relationships with the people who live in these impoverished villages. People who live in a world where water supply, electricity, beds, bathrooms, etc. are not even thought of because they are thinking about how they are going to make it to their next meal. They are families just like ours but they don't have the privilege of living in a country where we have access to the what we call "essentials."
I pray that as we begin this journey that you, KIUMC, would consider sponsoring and supporting our Youth as they embark on a journey like no other. They will encounter Christ in the faces of those less fortunate as well as in the team of people they will serve with.
