Youth Mission Trip - NOLA August
Plans are coming together for our seventh year to work in New Orleans!
NOLA – Week 2!
Due to the overwhelming response to our NOLA Mission Trip, we are adding a second trip this year. While the group will be smaller, it will include all of the hard work and great fun associated with this trip to New Orleans.
Who: There will be 2 chaperones: John and Heather Miller. The trip is open to 9-11th graders, and we can take up to 12 youth with roughly equal numbers of each gender.
What: Hard work! Expect to be installing floors, laying tile, painting, etc. on a home, school, or other building. You will sweat. A lot. We will also have fun exploring New Orleans in the evenings.
Where: New Orleans, Louisiana
When: August 6-12, 2017
Why: We have had a wonderful experience in New Orleans the last six years. During our time, we have seen that there is still plenty of work to be done in the wake of Hurricane Katrina and throughout New Orleans.
How: We will fly down and then rent a van. We will take the van to and from the airport and our work sites. We will stay with Annunciation Mission (www.annunciationepiscopal.com) in gender specific, air-conditioned, bunk-style rooms. Annunciation will provide our meals and our projects will be coordinated by either Rebuilding Together New Orleans (www.rtno.org) or SBP (http://www.stbernardproject.org).
Cost: The final cost will be determined once we buy airfare. It will be around $700.
Contact: John Miller – or 967-0842 ext. 14
- It is hot in New Orleans in June. Really hot.
- The work we do on Mission Trips is hard. Please come prepared to give your best. We have developed a really good reputation with the organizations we work with. We’d like to keep it that way.
- Special requests about getting to work on certain jobsites or with specific people cannot be honored. This is a group Mission Trip, and we are all in it together.
Partial funding for this second NOLA Mission Trip is made possible through the generous gifts made to the Imagine Initiative.
