|A mission work site in Alaska|
Here are the destinations and a little about each voluntourism opportunity.
Jones Chapel UMC has been in ministry for two decades on the Choctaw Reservation. Leaving the last week of June, team members will be involved in maintenance and grounds keeping work around the mission site. The team also plans and implements a Vacation Bible School for the children there. This includes everything ride alongs in the transportation vans and distributing to teaching and doing everything else that has to be done for a VBS. Interested in helping? Cost is less than $300 per person. Visit http://lesbear.wix.com/choctaw

There probably isn't a more beautiful place to serve than Girdwood, Alaska. The team will be helping with a VBS at the northernmost point of the largest rain forest on the planet. Located near the Gulf of Alaska, prices are still being put together. Trip costs are estimated to be around $1500 each. In addition to VBS, there will also be some light grounds keeping work to be done. Email email@example.com to be involved.
Cherokee, North Carolina
The third mission trip is to the beautiful mountains of Western North Carolina. The team will be doing some home repair and construction projects around the Cherokee area. This mission trip will take place in late summer of 2015. Details are still being ironed out. It is possible that this voluntourism opportunity will be 3-4 days instead of a full week. Does this sound like an opportunity that you would like to help with? Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Check back often for information about the mission trips. Summer of 2015 is looking to be a very busy one for the UMC churches of Southeast McMinn County!
