Bdecan Mission Trip - June 25-30, 2017

Plans are being finalized for our second mission trip to the Bdecan Presbyterian Church on Spirit Lake Indian Nation June 25-30, near Devils Lake, ND. The sign up deadline for adults and youth wanting to participate in the mission trip is May 15. Volunteers may work as many days as they wish. 

Adults and young people from our congregation will be going on this mission trip.  We will be installing new siding on the Bdecan Church manse and we will be cleaning out a storage shed.The youth will be leading Bible School for the Bdecan children. Last year during our first Bdecan Church mission trip we installed new windows in manse, did cleanup, and helped organize the Bedecan Church's clothing and food distribution program.

There are several ways our congregation members can participate in the mission trip; by signing up to work; by baking and providing snacks and food; by praying for our mission team; and by providing cash donations.

CLEARWATER FOREST WORK CAMP PICTURES

                                                                 

Day 1: Built two saw horses because the shop didn't have any(first picture above). Then they built three canoe racks. When the canoe racks were done they were carried down to the waters edge with the tractor and loader!
 

      

Day 2: They built the floor of what is going to be a screened in porch.
 

                     

They stayed in the Osprey House and washed the windows, curtains, light fixtures, and scrubbed the kitchen.
