Mission dinner raises $362

Posted on Thu, Jul 12, 2012

 The homemade chicken noodle dinner July 8 received $362 in donations that will be used to help pay expenses of a mission team that will work next month in the New Hampshire camp run by the Mountain Mentors.

 Mountain Mentors is a free-standing non-profit organization in Toledo that works with at-risk teens in the greater Toledo area. It began as a ministry of the United Methodist Church. It operates under the supervision of the charge conference at Unity UMC in Northwood.

 The Zion team includes Mike, Laurie and Carrie Andryc, Pat Young, Melissa Gregg, Larry and Sherry Keeler. Accompanying the group will be a couple from Fulton County, Dave and Linda Rogers, and Bob Duffy, a representative from the Mentors camp staff. 

Members of the team purchased and prepared the food for the dinner. Leftover items were made available to the Soul Surfing teen group that meets Wednesdays, and further items were delivered to Helping Hands of St. Louis, a free kitchen that serves poor people in East Toledo. The Zion team p will build a deck on a home at the Mentor camp, paint a metal frame used to create an outdoor kitchen, refinish floors in the home, and do general camp maintenance.

 The camp is situated on the Maine-New Hampshire border, about one hour from Portland, ME.

 Team members will be at the camp the week of Aug. 5 and need your prayers.
