Indianapolis Mission Trip June 21-27

Why Indy?

  • To build on the work that we accomplished in previous years.
  • There’s great need. The children and youth we will be working with have had hard lives and difficult family situations. Many have dealt with abuse, neglect, and parents who struggle with substance abuse and legal troubles.
  • The type of work we will be doing in Indianapolis is reproducible right here in the CLE.
