To Mission or not to Mission
My kids (particularly my daughter) need service hours for scouts. As a result, they've started going to church with a friend's children on Wednesday nights. They're participating in a program called "Kids on a Mission". It's an outreach program for kids to help other kids and groups. This past week my two were invited to participate in a mission program over spring break. They'll be headed to Alabama to a church to do a mini-bible school. My kids aren't sure about it for a couple of reasons. One - they're new to the program and it's an adjustment as it is. Two- it's sleep-away with non-family which they haven't done yet. So, we have a lot of thinking to do to make up our minds about whether or not to let them go.
