This summer, our youth ministry took two trips to beautiful Estes Park, Colorado, for a different type of mission trip: a mission of the heart. Our middle school and high school students experienced the beauty and stillness of God’s creation through camping, hiking, and spiritual reflection. These trips are a time in which each student focuses on their personal relationship with God as well as their role as a part of the body of Christ.
In June, we took 41 high school students and nine adults on this life-changing trip and had the privilege of baptizing five students and celebrating a rededication of another. A few weeks later in July, we took 27 middle school students and 14 adults for their own trip. Thank you for your prayers in preparation and during both trips.
Encounter is a truly impactful experience for both our students and our adult sponsors. Thank you to our adult sponsors who drove, cooked, encouraged, nursed, organized, and supported our students: Letitia Anthony, Shauna Becker, Allyson Cain, Brian Cain, Jaima Carder, Lee Christensen, Mitchem Ernst, Tonya Fondren, Brian Haley, Robert Hall, Steve Hanson, Charles Hoppe, Brian Huffer, Madi Huffer, Susan Huffer, Shannon Medley, Angie Percival, Heather Portillo, and Kim Woods.
