Recap of Youth Mission Trip
Youth Mission Trip held June 17th - June 22nd
The Christ Church Youth Mission team returned safely to Valdosta on Friday, June 22nd.  The youth and chaperons had a wonderful time in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida.  Here is a link with a recap, thoughts and photos of the trip.
DR Team Returns Saturday
June 23-30, 2018
The DR team will be home Saturday afternoon. The trip has been full of activities including: Vacation Bible School, playground structure painting, mural painting, sewing class, bracelet class, and a veterinary rabies clinic. All is well with the team.

The team will be bringing home a plague given to them during a school graduation ceremony. The plague  gives thanks for the years of scholarship support contributed by the Home Team and the Go Team of Christ Church and other partner churches and friends in other locations. In the past 3 years, we have given 70 (at US$350 each) scholarships for a school with 125 students enrolled.  This will be brought to Christ Church on the teams return.

Watch the Christ Church Facebook page for important news about the trip. The Dominican Republic Mission Team will return on Saturday afternoon. Depending on internet access in El Pedregal, other news and photographs will be posted daily on Julius Ariail's Facebook page 
at this link. The direct link to his initial trip photograph album is here.
