Chicago Mission Trip
This Friday morning our team of 19 leave for the ‘Windy City’ of Chicago. We will be partnering with Craig & Elizabeth Priestly who live on the West side of Chicago, near Humboldt Park. They are a part of Legacy Christian Fellowship, which is seeking to spread the gospel through house church partnerships; they currently have 9 such churches. During the week, these churches meet regularly for discipleship and on Sunday gather for worship at their home. Then once a month all gather for a time of corporate worship and fellowship.
One of the primary objectives of our trip is to listen and learn from our brothers and sisters that are living out the gospel in their community and context. We also want to do all we can to encourage them in the work God has called them to. One of the ways we hope to do so is though a ‘yard renovation project’, helping provide some needed ministry space for the children of the neighborhood. We hope to help get a start to that by having some of our students lead a bible club during the evenings, creating interest and excitement about an ongoing ministry. We are also seeking to get to know their neighbors by community service projects during the days. You can partner with us this week through your regular prayers; we know much of the success of such a trip is due to the faithful prayers of His people…so we thank you ahead of time for lifting us up. May we be ‘blown’ along by God’s Spirit faithfully serving and sharing the love of Christ!
