South Dakota mission plannedby Kevin Butler
Plans are in place for a one-week mission trip to the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, South Dakota, March 22-30 (the 22nd and 30th are travel days).
Please announce the trip at your church this week and remind people during the month of February. Contact me for a flyer at email@example.com that you can post or distribute. You’ll also need a Short Term Missionary Application from the Missionary Society. I can e-mail that to you, too.
The trip cost is $300 per person for the week, plus I’m asking $50 toward food. We could certainly use a volunteer to be head cook, giving them lots of help of course. Perhaps the churches could help their members who want to go by holding some fund-raisers.
If anyone is not sure about sleeping on bunk beds at the church, there are motels in Martin, about a 20-minute drive from Batesland. We can also arrange to meet people who fly in to Rapid City, SD.
The Missionary Society would be glad to help interested people plan a summer trip if that timeframe works better. A stay of at least 2 weeks is preferred, but in our case we only had the one week of Spring Break available. I found that once I’d been there I definitely wanted to return to help some more. Please let me know of anyone interested in this trip. Thank you!
