Have you ever thought about going on a mission trip but weren’t sure you were qualified or how to go about it? Here’s a way to share God’s Love and help others regardless of your training, age, or skill levels.
An organization called Eight Days of Hope is a Christian, nonprofit group begun after Hurricane Katrina. It is evangelical but non-denominational. Volunteers of the group have their food, lodging, and tools provided at no cost. The group says it exists to demonstrate the love and hope of Jesus Christ by service to those in need. Several volunteers from the Lampasas area have participated in Eight Days of Hope events in the past and are preparing for a new serving opportunity coming up in June (June 4-11) in Lafayette, Louisiana.
If you’re interested…here’s your chance! Chris Chiles is theleader from Eight Days of Hope’s rapid Response team. He is coming to Lampasas on April 29th to talk about upcoming ministry opportunities. Chris and his spouse Niki will be at Grace Fellowship, Saturday, April 29th at 6pm. He will be there to answer questions and explain how everyone can be involved.
