Father Dave Commissions Youth Team

Father Dave Commissions the Youth Mission team on Sunday, June 20

After months of planning and fundraising, our youth were ready to strike out on their Mission Trip for 2016. Father Dave commissioned the group Sunday morning before they left Valdosta for their base of operations at Saint Mark’s Episcopal Church in Palm Beach Gardens, Fl. They will be helping out with their labor (and their enthusiasm) at several projects in the area.  Youth team members are: Brooklyn Prine, Kate Hanson, Mary Peeples, Jim Chamberlain, J. D. Greneker, and Paul Johnson. They are accompanied by Molly Stevenson and Dave Johnson

Check back with this page as we add daily updates sent to us from the team.  We area also updating the Google Pictures Gallery with photos.

After a lot of work, time for some fun. Our mission team went to Marlin Park for a ballgame with the Cubs. The Marlins won the game and there were winners in the stands. Well, mostly winners in the right field stands as Molly Stevenson was pulling for the Cubbies. Game recap here

Tomorrow the team goes to Key West for some more fun. Careful kids, don’t fall off the continental US!

A Fun day of sight seeing in Key West.  The team pauses to pose at two of the most famous land marks in town. To bad they’re too young to have a drink at Hemingway’s favorite local watering hole.
