High School Mission Trip to Sunnybrook Children's Home
July 2012

 

Spring is here.  School is winding down and mission trip fever is on the rise!  We are very excited to tell you about a new destination for our high school mission trip.  It's called Sunnybrook Children's Home and it is located in Jackson, Mississippi. 

Sunnybrook is a Children's Home that is dedicated to taking in students who need a place to live because their parents are unable to take care of them.  Reaching out to some of the youngest in our society, the staff at Sunnybrook shares God's love with children who may have never known His love before.

To help you know some of the details about the trip, we have created this webpage with lots of info about the trip.  You'll see a link at the bottom which will allow you to sign-up for the trip if you choose to go.  We invite all high schoolers to join us for this amazing trip of reaching out, sharing God's love, and serving Him. 

 

Here are the details about the Sunnybrook Mission Trip:


-What are the dates?:
July 23-28, 2012

-Who can go?: Students who are currently in 9th, 10th, 11th or 12th grade


- When is the sign-up deadline?: Sunday, May 13.  If you want to sign-up before then, you can.  You don't have to wait til the last minute.  (But it's okay if you do.)


-What will we be doing?:  Lots of things.  Specifically, we will be spending time with the children at Sunnybrook, working on projects around the Sunnybrook campus, playing games with the children, teaching lessons to the children, and doing everything we can to shine God's light to the residents and staff of Sunnybrook.  

-Where is Jackson, Mississippi?:  East of here.  If you need more specific info about this, use your computer to find a map.

-Isn't it a long way to walk?:  Yes, that's why we'll be taking the bus.
 

-How old are the children at Sunnybrook?:  All of the children are school age.  Some may be as young as Kindergarten and some may be in high school.

-Where will we sleep at night?: We will be staying in classrooms and in the gym at Sunnybrook.  You'll need a sleeping pad or an air mattress and a sleeping bag. 


-Can we all get under the bus if we need shelter from the rain?:  No, you can only do that at Uplift.


-How can I learn more about Sunnybrook Children's Home?:
  Go to their website: www.sunnych.net  

-What else do I need to know before I sign-up?:  This is a trip focused on serving others.  Before you sign-up for this trip, understand that you will need to have the heart of a servant for the entire trip.  If you are always thinking about yourself or if you get grumpy when you don't get your way, this is probably not the best trip for you.  However, if you are willing to make sacrifices in order to help others, then we think you will love this trip.  It will not be an easy trip.  We'll be working outside in the heat of July in Mississippi...we'll be spending long hours with the children at Sunnybrook...we'll be getting up early/staying up late and doing everything we can to help the children and staff for the entire trip.  It's going to be amazing, but please know that you need to have a heart for serving others for this trip. 
 

-What is the cost for this trip?:  $145.  This covers all of your food, transportation, activities, supplies needed for work projects, supplies needed for lessons/activities with children, etc.  You will also need money for 2-3 fast-food meals while traveling
 

-Are there other requirements?:  Yes.  Three things: Service hours, scripture memorization, and mission trip preparation meetings.

  • Service Hours: Every participant who goes on this mission trip will be asked to earn 15 service hours before we go.  These can be back-dated to February 1, and must be complete by July 22.

  • Scripture Memorization: Every participant who goes on this mission trip will need to memorize 5-6 scriptures about loving God and serving others.  We will give you the specific scriptures at our preparation meetings.
     
  • Mission Trip Preparation Meetings: We plan to have 3-4 preparation meetings which all participants will be required to attend.  These meetings will start sometime around the beginning of summer and happen throughout June and early July.  We will work with everyone to try to find the best time for these meetings.  You will also have some preparation meetings with your teaching team.
