Christmas Break Mission Project – January 10, 2016

Sunday, January 10th, after the 10:00 AM services, St. James Youth Group (children ages 4-12) were invited to take a short field trip to Target and help purchase/ put together two or more Syrian refugee kits.  Syrian refugees are in urgent need of health and hygiene supplies, as they are vulnerable, at danger of poor health and sickness that can spread quickly. The Emergency Relief staff at MTI have identified refugee kits as the most immediate, urgent answer to these needs among refugees.
