1st Team Meeting - 11/20/2011

There was a meeting after church for anyone who is interested in going on the mission trip to Hungary next summer. Matt and I were surprised, yet excited, at how many people showed up! We heard about some more basic info. about the trip. We need a team of 25, which I think we had! We now know the dates, the cost, etc....now, time to get working! I know my passport is out of date so I need to remember to get that updated asap! (Can't wait to get that teenage punk hairdo off of my passport - ha!) The next HUGE thing is brainstorming fundraising ideas for our individual costs and our team's cost. We are to pay for our flight, housing, food, etc., but we also pay for the kids to attend the camp. Since the government took camp away from the kids in the orphange, if we want to lead a camp we have to "BRING IT!" It costs about $150 for 1 child to attend the camp...and about 150 kids hope to attend. The government will still be watching closely though. We can offer a worship service, along with all the other fun stuff, but we can't say everyone has to come here at this time. We can't give an invitation, but we can use a translator and talk to a child one on one about God. Hey, we'll take it! Another thing I just remembered is, one of the other women who is interested in going KNOWS a Hungarian family HERE! Love how God works! Hopefully, we can meet this family to learn more about the language and culture. Awesome!


  1. Kathy and I are very proud of you and we would be happy to sponsor a camper, Are we the first to sign up? How old are these kids?

  2. I think you are! Thank you so much for sponsoring a child! To the best of our knowledge, the kids can be elementary age through about age 18! So, we need to be on our toes and prepared for anything. We may know more specifics as we get closer, but not sure yet.
