For the fifth year in a row, we led our middle school students in a weeklong mission camp, serving our local community. Middle School Mission Camp is like a mission trip without leaving town. During the week, students lead a VBS for nearly 250 kids in our community each morning, and then volunteer each afternoon with local ministry organizations. This year, we partnered with Mission Southside and helped lead four other VBS-like camps in neighborhoods around Olathe and Gardner. Our friends from Macau joined with us to help serve our community. We discovered that serving and love are universal languages.
