Getting ready to go on my first ever church mission trip, to Cedar Rapids, Iowa, this weekend. Our group of eleven will be hosted by friends and family of our friend and Cedar Rapids native Ted, and our jobs will be "mucking out." Information is available at Churches United and Corridor Recovery.
Keep us in your prayers, please...we are driving up on Thursday, July 31 and returning on Sunday, August 3.
So...those of you who have done this kind of work in the past...what advice would you give me?
