The purpose of this trip will help support NorthWind Family Ministries in their efforts to create a safe place for others to find community and meaningful connections to God & one another. The trip will include 4 day trips to communities where relationships and bridges are being made to NorthWind Family Ministries. The final 3 days, the team will help host a weekend overnight camp for youth who are part of these communities. The team will help facilitate camp activities (i.e. paintball, canoeing, archery, etc...) with the intention of helping youth find a place to belong. The overnight camp will also have gatherings where youth have opportunities to connect with God and each other through small group conversations.
The purpose of this trip will help support Noel Hutchinson (one of our very own global workers) in Mongolia, a country with 90,000 Christians who started with only 5 Christians after Communism fell. You will be a part of a team that helps with kids and families with Life Skills Training as part of our service with the team. You will also have the opportunity to travel with some of the church planters who share the story of Jesus to a nomadic people group. Check out the video below from Noel and the Asian Outreach website (a strategic partner of ours).
