Transformational Mission Opportunity

Information and interest gathering is beginning for a mission work trip to the Virgin Islands to assist in debris removal and cleaning from the effects of Hurricanes Irma and Maria.  Southwest Conference Disaster Coordinator Phil Shea and a small interest group of about seven others from Scottsdale Congregational and Black Mountain UCC are meeting this week to share date possibilities and details in the hopes of forming a team from the Southwest Conference to respond. 

Participants of a mission team such as this must be 16 years or older, abled-bodied, and willing to do hard work in a hot, humid climate, with transitional-type accommodations (i.e. sleeping on cots, power outages, preparing your own food as a team).  

If this piques your interest as a way to walk and work your faith into servant-action, be transformed, and make a difference in the world,  contact Phil Shea, 602-663-5065, or
