The St. Peter's Mission Trippers Return
The St. Peter's Mission Trippers Return

The St. Peter’s Youth Group got back from their Mission Trip last night, after a 3,000+-mile journey and a week at work in Dulac, LA, helping build housing in a region that’s been devastated by hurricanes – and that now has to deal with the oil spill.   (See “Gulf Coast Plea: ‘Keep Buying Our Louisiana Seafood’” for more about that.)

Many thanks to these kids – and to the kids from Church of the Redeemer in Morristown, who went to Dulac, too – for what they’ve done with loving and faithful hearts to help others, and for representing St. Peter’s and Redeemer – and Morristown – to the world. We’re all very proud of them.

You can read the Youth Group’sTwitter page of their comments throughout the 12-day trip here.  I’ve loved following along with them via Twitter; it was a little bit of this and a little bit of that, every day – getting a real spontaneous sort of feel for what was going on in their travels, work, and lives. Twitter is actually just perfect for something like this – it gives you the feeling of being right there. Here are a few of those comments from the past week (in reverse order, they way they came in):

(St. Peter’s has a Twitter feed, too, here; we’ll post event news there as it happens.)
