Greetings from Morning Star Ranch in Florence Kansas. My family and I are here to check it out before our youth ministry mission trip this summer. It is a sunny 58 degrees. This is a great facility! There are all sorts of outdoor things to do, and our students will be busy helping them recover from weeks of summer camps. Wednesday morning, we’re taking a trip into Wichita to the World Impact site there. I hope that you’ll be talking to your students about this GREAT opportunity to minister to others. The “early bird” cost of this trip per student is only $130. AFTER April 16th, the cost for the trip will increase to $150. Please help me plan for this trip with a $25 deposit and application turned in by April 16th. I’ve attached the application to this email.
Here are some websites about to check out.
