This past July, we, the Vernon United Methodist Church, sent 12 members on the Red Bird Mission Trip to Beverly, Kentucky including Bobbie DeGraaf, Chuck Reaves, Dawn Chase, Jake Lally, Julia Kotkin, Leslie Straub, Michele Landtau, Nancy Adam, Sam Perez, Sue Gales, Tony Straub and Pastor Eunice. We joined another 114 missionaries from 10 churches, who were called by God and supported by their churches, to fulfill the words of 1 Corinthians 15: 58 (NLT): “So, my dear brothers and sisters, be strong and immovable. Always work enthusiastically for the Lord, for you know that nothing you do for the Lord is ever useless.”
For almost a week, we prayed, sang, shared our faith, worshipped, ate, slept and worked together with one goal in mind, reach out to people in need, directly or indirectly, who live in the Appalachian Mountains of Southeastern Kentucky. The projects in the community ranged from roofing to flooring work, and we also had the chance to work in the mission campus to improve the facilities Red Bird Mission uses to provide community support and outreach throughout the year. We finished the week feeling that we made the difference in the lives of the people of Kentucky, far from us but close to our heart, beloved children of God. We completed the week tired but spiritually renewed to con-tinue doing God’s work in our midst.
The 2015 Red Bird Mission team gives thanks to the Vernon Church, family and friends for their understanding that mission work has no land boundaries, for the financial support and for the prayers while we did mission in the name of Jesus.
You are invited to learn more about the Red Bird Mission by attending the next information session scheduled for Sunday, November 8th, 12:30 p.m. in the church sanctuary. The 2016 Red Bird Mission Trip is scheduled for July 16-23.
