Project Serve Mission Trips offer families the opportunity to serve side-by-side in ministry. From construction to sports camp, home improvements to school assemblies there are ways for every age to serve the least of these. Make a choice to serve as a family and meet the needs of families on the Apache Reservation.
Trip Location: In August of 2013 we are returning to White Mountain Apache reservation in Arizona to once again serve the people of White River and work alongside Missionaries/Pastors Robert and Sharon Jimenez.
Following our teams visit in 2011, I received an email from one of the team members, Rian, then 11 years old. He wanted to return to help build homes for the children that are currently living in less than adequate houses. Upon contacting the missionary and the tribal council we were given permission to return and renovate homes. Homes of Hope emerged as an extension of iRock Ministries to help give families a chance to raise their children in an environment where they can thrive and feel secure. For more information about Homes of Hope visit www.helpusbringhope.com and go to Homes of Hope.
Trip Description: For the first three weeks in August of 2013 we will be organizing teams to converge in Arizona to help improve the living conditions of several families, make improvements to the children’s ministry and future teen challenge facilities, conduct sports camp for the kids and present Character Connex assemblies in the schools.
These trips are designed for the entire family, ages 10 and up. Everyone will have a place to serve based on individual skill sets and desires. Our main purpose for investing three weeks in this community is to share the love of Jesus through real and practical ways. When I think about this project I am drawn to the words of a song by Building 429, “All I know is I’m not home yet. This is not where I belong. Take this world and give me Jesus. This is not where I belong.” We are in this world for a short time and need shelter. As a team we can help provide both shelter and the knowledge of an eternal home where God is a loving and caring father waiting for us in heaven. Consider helping to build shelter and introducing people to their eternal home.
