The year has officially begun! This diverse, fun-loving, compassionate, and bold group of 22 has truly become a family in just a few short weeks! Here is a little bit about what we have been up to so far!
Over Labor Day, we packed up and headed north to Lake Metigoshe for a weekend of team-building. Through various challenges we learned that to properly build crucial trust and effective leadership within the team we needed to rely on one another; this type of cooperation has laid the foundation for our course of ministry ahead. Each team member rose to the occasion when it came to challenging themselves, all in all, making our “family” that much stronger.
This week we are preparing for our first ministry trip which will take place on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota where we will be working in the Oglala Lakota Native American community. We will be partnering with Wings as Eagles Ministries to help with various kids clubs, services, work projects, and outreach events. The team is very excited to go on our first ministry trip as a group! God has been working in all of our hearts and we are looking forward to all He has planned for Pine Ridge. Please continue to be in prayer for us as we start this journey as a team. It's only the beginning of all that God has in store for this year!
