On June 16, 18 teens and six adults from Christ Church and Church of the Ascension embarked on their trip to Lake Charles, Louisiana to work for the Christian organization Friend Ships. Please pray for them on their adventure!

Friend Ships is dedicated to fulfilling the biblical mandate to help people in need; regardless of ethnicity, religion, political affiliation, or age. They have a small fleet of ships that are packed full of food, clothing, medical and shelter supplies ready to respond to a call for help, internationally or locally. Our team will be assisting with getting a ship ready for its next mission—scraping rust, painting, and cleaning, as well as organizing and packing supplies in the warehouses—all while living and working on board, with the existing crew of volunteer missionaries.
