Short Term Missions
2016 Summer Missions Report
This summer has been an exciting and fruitful one as we took the love of Jesus to many hurting people. From the end of June through the end of July we had a month of powerful outreaches.
It all began with our Summer Intern Program in Elyria and Westlake, Ohio. After three and a half days of training, these amazing Interns hit the ground running. In one area we did outreaches to children in impoverished areas. In another we did a kids camp with the Star Wars theme “The Force Awakens.” They also did an awesome job in helping with work projects in the churches we were working with.
After we finished the Summer Intern program we traveled to Buffalo, NY where we met our team from West Virginia. Along with four adults this team was made up of young children from ages eight to ten years old. These kids were amazing! They learned all the dances, did some work projects and ministered in five Kidz Klubs!
Then it was off to the Navajo Indian Reservation in Gallop, New Mexico where we had a team of sixty people who did an outstanding job reaching our native Americans. The ministry there included a carnival for children and adults, a powerful youth meeting and a children’s camp with “The Force Awakens” theme.
In just that one month we saw hundreds of people give their lives to Jesus. We give all the glory to God and so thankful for all He did during these summer outreaches.
