District Mission Trip to Red Bird Mission
August 5-11, 2012
Cost is $250/person
On August 5 clergy and laity from across the Iroquois River District will be travelling to Red Bird Mission to participate in a “Work Mission Trip”. The trip is not just about what we can share or do for the people of Appalachia, it is also about relationships - relationships with God, the people of Appalachia, and one another.
This is how your church can help those going on the trip -
· Please be in prayer for the ongoing preparation for the trip and the team members.
· Approximately $9,000 is needed to cover the cost of construction materials for projects and for fuel for volunteer’s vehicles for the trip. Our Iroquois River District churches are being asked to contribute sufficient funds to cover these costs. Based on the number of churches in the district that’s only $100 per church. 
 For additional information or questions please contact the district office or Pastor Charlie Graul at 217-288-9314 or chasgraul2000@yahoo.com.
Informational meetings will be held over the next 2 weeks in different areas in the district. The schedule is as follows –
Monday, Feb 13           7:00pm               Danville First UMC
Thursday, Feb 16         7:00pm               Villa Grove UMC
