Oct-Nov 2014 (about 10-14 days)
In coordination with the Dakotas-Minnesota Episcopal Area, this team will work on construction projects, agricultural development, ESL and other culturally appropriate and need-based projects. We will share the vision for these mission trips, how they fit in the vision of missionary service in this church and how you can be a part of this ministry. Together we can be the hands and feet of Jesus in helping others, all the while showing the face of Christ to those that most need to see it.
