Since this advertisement was sent, we want to share a few updates with you:
The date of the mission has been updated. We will begin January 23, NOT January 16!
We are currently coordinating 18 venues to host our dinner meals. (THANK YOU if your organization/church is one of them!!)
We are still accepting applications to help with construction. Application deadline is January 2, 2017.
We still need a few local homes (Selinsgrove Area) to house the missionaries who come to perform construction duties. If you are interested and have an extra bed, couch or sleeping space, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 570-374-8539.
Thank you for your support and continued prayers.
