“Mission 24″ is a 24hr mission trip experience that is a part of the RTN effort to reach all nations. This missions experience is unique in that it helps financially aid one or two refugees per team that comes.
Like many Americans at the current time, jobs are often hard to come by for the refugee community. Unfortunately many refugees struggle to find work because of language, cultural, and transportation barriers. For every team that participates in Mission 24 RTN will pay two refugees for helping prepare and serve food for two meals. Not only will you be able to feed the community spiritually through Mission 24, you will feed some families physically. See below for more details.
Who Can Come? – Mission 24 is for teams of all ages that desire to come for one overnight trip. It is primarily for local churches in the area, but is open for all. Mission 24 is limited to teams of 15 – 30.
What is the Schedule? – Teams will arrive on Friday nights and will go to an apartment complex for Friday evening ministry. The team will have a cookout with hotdogs (see costs) and make contacts with residents. Upon returning, teams will debrief. On Saturday morning, breakfast will be provided and the teams will engage in prayer walking to the same apartment community and visiting families met the night before. Lunch will be provided at noon. After lunch and preparation for a Backyard Bible Club, teams will conduct a Backyard Bible Club in the apartment complex. When BBC is concluded the team returns home.
What is the Cost? – The cost is $25 per person and a 12 oz. bag of rice per person. This will cover your overnight stay at a church, breakfast and lunch on Saturday, and the financial aiding of two refugee volunteers. T-shirts are an additional $12.
