Mini Mission Trip to Baltimore

May 27 – 31, 2009

Using just four days instead of a week, OG took their first “mini” mission trip to Baltimore, Maryland.  There they worked with Sandtown Habitat for Humanity, a non-profit Christian organization in the Sandtown neighborhood in west Baltimore.  Sandtown Habitat’s mission is to rebuild vacant houses in the neighborhood which it accomplishes by working in partnership with a homeowner and using volunteer labor.  In a team effort, the OG group followed on the heels of the youth group (YG), who had worked in Sandtown during their spring mission trip in April.  Including contractor, Jim Chevalier, and Director of Service Ministries, Connie McManus, ten OG mission fish volunteered their services and put the finishing touches on one home almost ready for occupancy, and began the framing of a brand new project in the neighborhood.  In total, 263 homes have been renovated since the program began in 1989.
