Mission Trip coming up in April

17 01 2011

We’re currently putting together a mission team to travel to Senegal April 2-10, 2011.  If you’re interested in going please fill out the application and send to our volunteer coordinator at:  Volunteer.   This team will be largely construction oriented with a small medical and teaching component.

We will be involved in building a vocational school that will be geared toward housing and training the poor and marginalized boys in the poorest section of St. Louis, Senegal.  A compassionate heart and willingness to serve are the only prerequisites.

We will also assist and come alongside the medical personal in the medical clinic at the Yoonu Njup Community Center.  They have very little opportunity for training; we hope to evaluate and treat patients side by side and learn from each other.  We are looking for nurses, doctors and others with medical training that are willing to serve.

In addition there is opportunity for interaction and teaching in the girls’ school.  We need someone who is willing to just “hang out” and perhaps teach on life skills, nutrition, or whatever you would like.  Just our presence and love is an encouragement to these girls.

If your interested in just exploring the idea of being part of this team, but not ready to apply  -stay tuned-  we will have an organizational meeting soon, date to be announced.

Check out our new web site:  www.shoretoshore.org  for additional ways you can get involved here at home.

Hi John! How exciting, another trip in April. I would love to join the medical team on this trip but my sister, Jocelyn, has Stage IV, terminal lung cancer with only a few months here before she goes home to Heaven. I must remain here to serve the needs of my family therefore I cannot make this particular trip. As always, my heart is to serve the poor among us wherever the need…..I will lift all of you up in prayer as you prepare and serve the needs of our African brothers and sisters. Let me know if I can help with the preparation of the medical team, if I can assist you I certainly will.

Peace & Joy ~ Diane
