Mission Workcamp Trips
Why Workcamp?  Many elderly and disadvantaged people have to make tough choices…like keeping a house warm in the winter or buying food and medicine. But we can help. We can help people in need with meaningful Christian home repair. And, at the same time, we will hear God’s Word…do God’s Word…and deepen our spiritual walk; all while providing meaningful service to people in need. 

 

1  John 3:18
 As we serve others, we’ll ‘Love Out Loud’—not just think about it, not just talk about it, but do it!  As we ‘Love Out Loud’ for others, we’ll experience the transforming love of Jesus in powerful ways, too.  We’ll learn more about Jesus, who showed us how to ‘Love Out Loud’.  And, of course, the loudest anyone has ever loved was when Jesus died on the cross for us.

****************************************************

Workcamp 2008 
"My faith definitely grew stronger, and I realized what is most important in my life!"
 
"It's amazing to see the kinds of relationships and bonds you can make in such a short time.  I'll never forget it."
 
"There's no good reason to not forgive a person, because God forgave every person for bigger, badder things."
 
"I truly found my real self at this camp.  I will never forget this truly holy and miraculous experience."
 
"I need to LOVE OUT LOUD more, because it's so much FUN!"
 
"Love really does multiply!"
 
 
 
 
 
 

 

 

 


Workcamp 2007
“We may not have changed the world . . . but we sure made a difference in a little city in southern Kansas!”
Neodesha, Kansas, is not the same anymore after 47 people from Prince of Peace spent a week there giving homes a face lift.  Homes were painted, porches repaired, wheelchair ramps built, and weatherization projects done. 


But much more than home repairs happened during the week.  Listen to a reporter’s story that appeared in the Neodesha Derrick on June 21st.

 “Lives have been touched with love.  If you have helped with this project in any way, you know what I’m talking about because you felt it.  Within each of us there is a spirit that longs to connect with another human being.  This spirit gets pushed down inside of us much like a seed hoping someday to push its way up out of the soil and grow.  Conditions were right for growth this week.  A big thank you to all of you who made that push and connected with your neighbors.  Cherish that part of you that loves as God loves.  Always remember that good feeling, fertilize it with more goodness and more love towards others, and the miracle of it all will make a difference and change our world.”
