FPCSA Mission Trip
We will spend one week be working with Project Homecoming, a nonprofit devoted to helping the people of New Orleans rebuild from the devastating events surrounding Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. We will be part of a large (80+) team of people from across the country coming together with the people of New Orleans to rebuild homes/neighborhoods. Check out this video and PH’s website. We will work with our hands rebuilding during the day and we’ll get a flavor of the people and creation (bayou tour!) of the Gulf coast.
When: Saturday, June 14 – Sunday, June 20, 2015
Where: New Orleans, LA
Who: High school youth who have already complete their first year of high school
What: rebuild the New Orleans community, build relationships & faith, have FUN
Cost: $1,000/person* (may decrease when we purchase tickets)
*This is a trip that we want our community to support. Thus, we will not ask our parents to cut a check for the entire amount. Rather we will ask our community to support us directly with a letter writing campaign, pancake breakfast, and a third option we need to plan (similar to last year’s “nail sale”). Yes, parents can support us, but it is important that we raise money ourselves.
We will meet regularly (every 3-4 weeks) throughout the spring to get to know one another, prepare ourselves for service, and serve together before we go.
I hope you will prayerfully consider being part of the mission team to build relationships, faith and help rebuild a community. Please contact me with any questions and concerns.
