ABOUT THE MISSION TEAM
In 2019 we are celebrating our 20th year of Mission and Disaster Relief work. Our first trip was to Del Rio, Texas from March 13 to March 22, 1999. The Team had 21 people on that first trip.
We are so blessed for the years we have been able to help those who are in need in our local communities and who do not have the money or have the physical health to repair their homes so that they may remain warm, safe and dry.
The Team continues to meet the third Monday of every other month or as needed to discuss outreach projects.
The Mission Team continues to work on local projects as needed. If you are aware of someone who needs some help with home repairs or would like to be involved in local projects please speak with Lori.
