A mission team of approximately 15 Morningside College students and staff members will spend spring break in Shiprock, N.M., reaching out to the Navajo peoples through the Four Corners Native American Ministry.
“It’s our hope that not only will we be able to provide some help with homes needing repair or upkeep, but that we’ll meet some very cool people as well and learn from them about the Navajo culture,” said the Rev. Kathy Martin, chaplain and director of church relations at Morningside College, who is leading the trip.
The students and staff members will leave Sioux City at 7 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 26, from the Olsen Stadium parking lot, which is located at the intersection of Peters Avenue and South Paxton Street. They will return to Sioux City on Sunday, March 6. They are working through the Volunteers in Mission program of the United Methodist General Board of Global Ministries.
Morningside College Campus Ministries organized six mission trips between 2006 and 2010 to help those affected by Hurricane Katrina and Hurricane Rita. It also has organized mission trips to respond to flooding within our own region.
