No one 'missions' alone

“Does God have a set way of prayer, 
a way that He expects each of us to follow? 
I doubt it. 
I believe some people-- lots of people-- 
pray through the witness of their lives, 
through the work they do, 
the friendships they have, 
the love they offer people 
and receive from people. 
Since when are words the only acceptable form of prayer?” 

 Dorothy Day

We may drive out to Rosebud as a small group
representing our two churches;
we may even work on projects in groups of 2 or 3,
but the reality is that there are many groups active on Rosebud,
living out their faith,
doing their small part
in making a difference.

One of the gifts of the Mission trip 
is to see yourself as part of an effort 
larger and more powerful 
than you could ever be on your own.

Here are just some of the people we were blessed to get to know
and work with this year.

(For those of us who came out to Rosebud in the late 90's and 2000,
this family should look familiar)
