WHEN

July 7-15, 2017

 

WHERE:

 

Pine Ridge Reservation, in South Dakota

 WHO:

 

FUMCCG Youth Group partnered with the Wings as Eagles Ministries (WAEM) - a ministry that provides housing for orphans, food for children and youth everyday, worship and evangelism to at-risk young people, community outreach and renovation projects through volunteer groups - to help where we were able to do the most good!

WHAT:

 

FUMCCG Youth Group visited the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota to serve at-risk Lakota youth on the Pine Ridge Reservation. We worked with Wings as Eagles Ministries (WAEM) to complete renovations on the WAEM youth center as well as preparing/serving food to impoverished youth, participating in youth outreach and working on small construction projects on the reservation.To further support this incredible ministry, we donated much needed musical equipment for worship services that had previously been stolen.

WHY:

 

The Pine Ridge Reservation is the poorest reservation in our nation. The Wings as Eagles Ministries is located on the Pine Ridge Reservation in the heart of the Badlands. This is a community with high rates of alcoholism, drug use, child abuse, youth suicide and child homelessness.

With God’s guidance, our church’s support and prayers, we hope to be the light of Christ in the darkness of our native lands. “...the people living in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of the shadow of death a light has dawned.” -Matthew 4:16.

Throughout the year our youth participate in missionary outreach in our South Florida community and in urban and rural settings throughout the U.S. to alleviate the suffering of others. Past missions have traveled to Mexico, Cuba, Haiti, Panama, and the southeastern United States.

THE GOOD WE DID

FUMCCG Youth make a difference!

We completed fundraising efforts and assembling UMCOR Health Kits for Hurricane Matthew victims. We raised over $2500 and were able to provide much-needed assistance to our brothers and sisters in need.
