Rocky Mountain Mission

We have had two weeks of Rocky Mountain Mission, with youth groups from Omaha and Minnesota working hard to serve our town. Jim Reis leads the sweat, and they’ve done a lot of that! Teens finished a number of projects for local seniors in need, transformed the Chipeta Park trail (so that wheelchairs can travel there now), planted trees for the Chipeta pond (for erosion control, so kids can still fish), put in two benches (in honor of a woman’s life), painted and stained the Carousel and Visitor Center, and worked at the Clothing Closet and Socks & Sandwiches. Each night the teenagers have a devotional with Hansen, to learn how outreach is part of God’s call to all our lives. They’ve enjoyed campfires, whitewater rafting, Rocky Mountain National Park, and local hiking. And somehow they keep putting the sanctuary back into order, after a week of sleeping on air mattresses and pew cushions. Thank you to everyone who supports this ministry, thanks to Wes for getting the program off the ground these last couple years, and thanks to our new friends from around the country who inspire us to love our neighbors even more.
