Macedonia Mission Trip

June 17-28, 2017

Woodland is going to Macedonia to serve alongside CBF Field Personnel Jeff and Alicia Lee. Our experience will be varied including working with refugees, working with adults with developmental delays, worshiping in an international church, serving with the Macedonia Food Bank, learning about the culture of Macedonia and more.

We will be challenged in our traditional thoughts and beliefs about mission. We will dive deep into discipleship by thinking critically about mission practice, the theological foundation of this practice, and how it relates to Woodland and our community.

The all-inclusive investment (except for personal expenses like souvenirs) is $2800.

It is now time to lock in our airline rates. Talk with Lance about securing your place.

Part of our experience (a large part) will be going through Pivot and reading When Helping Hurts together. This will greatly enhance our trip and move us toward a new vision of missions and a new engagement in our own community.

At Paraka, the residents grow their own food

Paraka is a group home for adults with cognitive disorders. Jeff and Alicia serve at Paraka teaching English, providing counseling, and much more. Our team will serve at Paraka alongside Jeff and Alicia.

New calf that will be given away to start a new dairy farm

At Aya Farm, they have dairy cows and sell the milk. When a new cow is donated to them, the first calf is given away to help start a new dairy farm.

The Macedonia Food Bank helps the very poor in Macedonia. The Roma are very grateful to have these boxes of food.
