Pray for the Summer Youth Mission Trip Students
Over ninety of Easter’s youth and approximately twenty adults are busy planning mission trips for this summer where they will travel to places such as: Duluth, MN; Osage Nation, OK; Adirondack Mountain, NY; New Orleans, LA; and Milwaukee, WI where they will address poverty, help with children’s programs, do simple work projects, and grow in faith and carry on the work of Jesus Christ. While they travel, we ask you to keep them in your prayers. Watch for ways you can sign up to be a prayer partner to some of these youth. It’s EASY! Contact Kathie Poppen at firstname.lastname@example.org and let her know you are interested. She will send you a short prayer written by Easter’s Youth Minister Hans Vigesaa, the name(s) of trip participant(s), the trip they are on,
and the dates they will be gone. During the trip, say the prepared prayer or one of your own each day. The students appreciate knowing they are being prayed for!
