Creating Life-Changing Experiences through Family Mission Work

Families that serve others together build powerful bonds. It doesn't matter what age your children are. Mission projects help them realize what it means to be Christ's hands in the world. 

Serving others helps to clarify family values by taking the focus off of ourselves and the materialism in our society. Instead, the whole family experiences the joy of being a blessing to others. Be prepared for life-changing experiences.
