Student Mission Trip 2011
Rosebud Sioux Reservation, South Dakota
June 26 – July 2, 2011
The Rosebud Reservation, near the spectacular Badlands National Park, is home to about 21,000 Native Americans. The unemployment rate is very high there, and many families live in poverty. On this trip, with the programmatic assistance of YouthWorks, St. Francis students will be joining three other church youth groups in doing home renovations and repairs and leading a Kids Club vacation Bible school.
We have only 21 spaces for students, and we are one student over the limit, so not everyone who has submitted a deposit will be able to go. If your registered son or daughter is not able to come on the trip, please let us Craig or Victoria know asap so we can finalize the list. We must commit to YouthWorks, airlines, etc., so once participants are selected, deposits are non-refundable. Trippers should download [right-click and select 'download linked file'] these YouthWorks documents:
Adult leaders: Craig Windham, Victoria Ellsworth, Betsy Carmelite, Fred Johnsen.
