Youth Mission Trip 2018
Red Lake, Minnesota - July 15-21

This year 12 CUMC youth and 3 adult leaders will travel to Red Lake, Minnesota to participate in a week long YouthWorks mission experience. 

This is the homeland of the Red Lake Chippewa Tribe whose ancestors were living here long before Europeans arrived. This is one of the few “closed” reservations—so called because the tribe has continually stood up to the government by refusing to divide and sell off their lands. Many people here still earn a living by fishing in the lake, and they supplement their diet by hunting game in the dense woods.

Jobs are scarce in this remote area, and unemployment runs high. Northern Minnesota is known for frigid winters that take a toll on houses. On top of that, many homes here are overcrowded. Due to low incomes and a shortage of housing stock, you often see several generations of a family crowding together under one roof. Projects will vary from painting, light carpentry and simple repairs to construction of sturdy decks to provide safe entry into homes.

Please be in prayer for the youth participants and leaders as they go out to serve.
