H i, I'm Laura and I am a part of the Cooperative Youth Group. (See photo of Laura and Andyn from the 2014 mission trip to Appalachia) This summer we are going on
a mission trip to Costa Rica, where we will be doing work in the community. We will be doing construction work in the mornings, helping out with whatever is
needed, and in the afternoons we will be working with the children in the community: doing activities with them, including tutoring in English and playing games
This mission trip is important to me because not only do we get to go help out in a community in poverty, we also have the opportunity to experience an entirely
different culture, and be in contact with people who we may have little in common with, so we get a chance to see and understand their situation and way of life.
This opportunity to gain a worldly perspective is really helpful because when we come back we will have a stronger understanding of how to communicate and help
people in situations different from our own.
It takes a lot for us to get to Costa Rica, so today I asking you to support our mission by donating Alaska Air Miles to help us get there. You can donate by
filling out the form below.
Thank you! Our youth mission team to Costa Rica appreciates your support!
