Each summer Trinity has a mission team that travels to North Dakota and serves at Spirit Lake Mission. This year is no exception!  It is such a fulfilling and wonderful experience to be a part of the mission team!  

North Dakota Mission News

Dear Trinity Family: Your North Dakota mission team has been busy, busy, busy! From baking cinnamon rolls to planning the lasagna dinner, from filling out registration forms to ‘filling up’ buses!

In April, the North Dakota mission team was the Mission of the Month, and we decided to dedicate the funds raised to our travel. It takes approximately $500 per vehicle. A poster with buses on it was made, and as I write this, we have seven smiley faces in our buses, each representing a $100 donation. Thank you to everyone who has helped to fill our buses so far.

April was also our annual lasagna dinner fundraiser. All funds raised at the dinner helped make sure our youth had their registration fees paid. They were each responsible for the initial $75, and the fundraisers will cover the remaining $250. This is such a huge help to make sure our youth get the chance to have a life-changing experience serving Christ through mission.

This year we have two new team members joining us from the Stephenson United Methodist Church! As I shared our mission with Kelly one Saturday morning while working with my mom at the Stephenson food pantry, Kelly got very excited to see what this is all about. I sent her an application, and she invited her friend Pam. I am always amazed at how God puts people in our paths!

Please continue to pray for the team as a whole, and as individuals by name. Team members are Blair Daugherty; Rick and Ann Musgrove; Jen and Riley Gauthier; Adam, Kristy, Logan, Maddie, Lizzy, and Charlotte Ryan; Piper and Maggie Strehlow; Scott Ritsema; Libby Lee; Maddie Koski; Casey Hansley; Kelly Wagner; Pam Pansch, and Diana Hunt.

We will be leaving bright and early on Sunday, June 18 and will be returning on Friday, June 23. Please watch the Sunday bulletins for any further updates, as this is the last Tower before our trip. Again, a HUGE word of thanks for your support this past year and all the years we’ve been active in this ministry. Our Trinity family is AWESOME!

God’s blessings,

Diana Hunt, team leader
