Earlier today, my son Parker (age 11), went on his first urban mission trip (without his parents) and I couldn’t be more proud of him. Our church is beginning an awesome partnership with the local organization Mobile Loaves and Fishes. A team from the church went out to capture some video footage for an upcoming promotional video and they needed a young male model.
The mission of this organization is pretty simple – “To provide food, clothing, and dignity to our brothers and sisters in need.” Basically, you load up a bunch of food and clothes on a truck and you deliver it to people who need it. The great thing about this new partnership is that it’s for all ages, it’s easy, it’s local, and helpful. No need to get booster shots, take time off work, or hop on a plane. Anybody and everybody can participate. You’ll be hearing more about it in the coming weeks. Just get ready.
