Last Friday Team New York, our church's first high school short term missions team, put on New York Night 08. The fundraiser included hot dogs, a short presentation about the trip, an art gallery full of student art, a raffle, and a stock exchange where patrons could invest in youth in exchange for having a postcard sent to them from NYC. The night was a smash success and we raised over $1000. Perhaps most exciting is seeing our church transition from being a church that recieves short term missions teams to one that sends them. We pray that this is the first of many.
The New York City trip will be from July 26-August 3. We will be working with the 2nd EV Free Church of Brooklyn. Our primary ministry will be running a VBS for the children of Chinese immigrants. Our group consists of 5 leaders (myself included) and 11 high schoolers. Please keep us in your prayers. If you would like to support us financially please let me know. The trip is $600 per person and so far we have raised about half of that.
