Missions Trip News


Day 1

The Team departed from King Road Church around 6:00 am, quite groggy, but excited for the journey ahead. We crossed the border smoothly! We went from cloudy to rainy to (finally) sunny in Grant's Pass. On the bus, there was a lot of talking, laughing, napping, and singing. Currently, we are gathered in a room, worshiping. We've filled our bellies with delicious pizza and fries and are glad to be able to finally stretch our necks. 

That's all for now,

Day 2


After jumping ahead 1 hour we left grants pass at 6:00 am. It was a great day for driving, great weather all the way and beautiful mountains with snow on them (mt. Shasta).

On the bus 🚌 we spent some quality time singing for a long time and also memorizing Gods Word. 

California received us with 28 degrees, almost a shock to our system, BUT we're not complaining. We arrived at 5:30 pm in Dinuba; we had supper and checked into our rooms at the Gleaners. After a time of worship and prayer it's bedtime; lights out. Tomorrow at 7:00 am it's breakfast then at 8:00 am we have chapel and afterwards we start serving. 

Everyone is in good health and spirits. 

We love ❤️ you!

Day 3

Hello from sunny ☀ California!!!!

We had a great day! The weather was like our summer, 26 degrees. We got up at 6:00 am and had breakfast at 7:00 am. After breakfast we had chapel. A women's university sang some uplifting songs. Afterwards we got introduced to the staff and people staying here. Then we got to choose where we wanted to work: Soup Plant (scooping soup mix, filling up bags, sealing the bags, putting the sealed bags in barrels, or scooping garlic powder into bags), dumping the rotten liquid from fruit out of buckets, scrubbing buckets, sorting recycling, helping in the kitchen, taking apart a chicken coop and fixing a fence.

We had a lunch break and a snack break, worked for one more hour and then ate dinner. Some crazy people from our group went swimming in the ice-cold water. Others went for a hike, or played basketball. In the evening, we had a time of worship, sharing, and prayer. And then we went to bed.

Please pray for our sunburns, that  we have joyful attitudes, for renewed energy, and that we will step out of our comfort zones.
