July 16 – 21 Western NCC & NCC Mission Partnership
The purpose of this mission trip is to work with the Puerto Rico Methodist Church for relationship development through the rebuilding of homes and churches. We will seek to offer ourselves sacrificially under the direction of UMVIM and the local church. With the participants of this trip, we hope they will consider being future leaders of trips at least quarterly but preferably one trip every other month. Please consider those in your church who understand ministry with and not, ministry to or for.
Cost of trip is approximately $850.00:
$375.00 – This covers: Housing, food, van rental and gas, translator
Airfare will depend on booking date.
