Mission trip to Texas
Rev. Mark Johnsen, Prairieview UMC is organizing a mission trip to southeast Texas November 19-26. The current plan is to leave Sunday afternoon, November 19 and return Sunday, November 26. Johnsen states, “We are preparing to take both a 14-passenger bus and a 15-passenger van if the number of participants requires.”
The registration deadline is October 22. The first 29 registrations will be guaranteed a spot on the trip. The cost of the trip is $150 per person. The price includes gas, food and lodging.
“We have registered our team with the Texas Annual Conference, but the exact type and scope of work, along with the exact location, will not be provided to us until a couple of weeks before the trip,” said Johnsen. “However, we have been told that we will be staying at a United Methodist church in a community within about an hour of Houston. We only need to bring open hearts to serve in whatever capacity they need us at that time.”
The scheduling of the trip during the week of Thanksgiving is intentional. Many people have Thursday and Friday off during that week, so the hope is that folks would have to take fewer days off from work. Johnsen notes, “What better way to show our Thanksgiving to God than to use that week to love our neighbors and help them in their hour of need? Please pray about it!”
