Destination: NWA

Destination: NWA is over. The mission experience for older elementary and middle school students is finished, and it was a success.

Four days, three nights, five work projects. It proves a simple point - you are never too young to serve God.

Students helped serve a community meal, held a canned food scavenger hunt for a food pantry, helped in the food pantry, and also helped move the furniture and toys back into a re-furbished church nursery.

All in all, 30 students and a plethora of adults took part in the trip - representing four churches within the Northwest (AR) District of the United Methodist Church.

Hopefully, a few students had a chance to "Break Out" of their comfort zones and learn how to serve God in new ways, within their local communities.
