Meet Grace!

mlab Uncategorized

Today, we’re going to introduce you to our seventh Summer Missionary, Grace.

To recap from last week, each year, MissionLab hires a team of 8 college-age guys and girls to serve with us all summer.

These SMs partner with MissionLab for 9 weeks of ministry and help facilitate easy communication between the leadership of the groups and MissionLab. They are also there to minister to the campers–because even though our MissionLab participants come here to serve, it is our prayer that the Lord works in their own hearts as well.
