Hurricane Service Team

This Summer, a team of 6 from Logos will be headed to NY, Far Rockaway for a week-long (7/7 - 7/13) home repair mission trip/workcamp. (More info about the workcamp) This team of youth and young adults will work hard repairing homes for people in need, and experience the amazing power of community to accomplish God’s work. In six short days, about a hundred young people from youth groups across the country will repair and transform homes while strengthening and transforming their own faith.

Part of the faith building comes in the form of the daily challenges. Now we don’t mean our young people will be asked scale a tree with a chainsaw but they will be challenged to do something they may not have done before. For some, that might be painting a house for the first time; or others, they may learn how to use a chop saw or drill.

During this week-long ministry, we pray for our young people to develop service leadership skills, combine with social concern and evangelism, just as Jesus Christ lived His life.

WHY?



Why?

For the LORD will be your confidence and will keep your foot from being snared. Do not withhold good from those whodeserve it, when it is in your power to act. Do not say to your neighbor, " Come back later; I'll give it tomorrow " ; when you now have it with you. Proverbs 3:26-28

" Be very careful, then, how you live - not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord's will is. " Ephesians 5:15-17

" They will rebuild the ancient ruins and restore the places long devastated; they will renew the ruined cities that have been devastated for generations. " -Isaiah 61:4



How can you help?

You can pray – Prayer is a constant and a given. Start praying for the team can be one of the most productive ways for you to contribute to the well being of the 6 participants (Pastor Adam, Joyce Ching, Johannes Hui, Jeremiah So, Jerry Lai, and Adley Tong). A week prior to this project, the team will be attending the New York Summer Conference which is is a 4-day East-coast Christian conference with hundreds of youth and college students. This is held during the 4th of July weekend every year.

You can give – Each participant needs to raise about a total of $950 (lodging, food, ground transportation, conference fee, air-ticket, tools and materials, etc). Your gift will be fully tax-deductible and all contributions will be applied to the team expenses as a whole. You will also be receiving email updates, group support letter, and individual support letter from our participants in the coming weeks if you like to direct your gift to a specific participant. You can also find a WALL-O-Money Fundraiser with labeled envelopes ranging $1-$100 in the church Fellowship Hall. Simply pick an envelope (you can pick according to your fav #, your birthdate, etc) and drop your cash/check to the enclosed donation box on the table that will be collected after lunch every Sunday for the next few months.
