On July 21, 20 youth, four adults, and one student leader from the Blessed Sacrament Church in Poth headed out to Arlington to work with Mission Arlington in helping to bring aid and comfort to those in need, spread the love of God to all those they meet, and to learn more about what it means to be citizens of God’s Kingdom.

The group spent three days helping out at an assisted living facility with getting residents’ rooms cleaned, getting the facility itself cleaned up, and spending time visiting with the residents (these kids went above and beyond on this task). On the last day the kids did not want to leave and asked if they could return to Arlington next year.

These great kids bonded with the elderly and each other. “The hardest part of the trip was leaving” was the reply of most students. They had gotten really close to some of the residents and wanted to stay longer. Some of the residents had been through wars and had stories to tell -- the best way to learn history.

They also spent a part of each day in worship, group Bible study, and quiet prayer times. The kids focused on learning to become the kind of citizens God is asking us to be for His Kingdom. They learned that it isn’t about what good things you do, but more about why you do them. They learned that no matter how wrong you go, God is always standing there with His arms open, ready to take you back. They know that His love never fails, and that He never gives up on us.

Another important lesson they learned was there is much they could do here at home to help those in need and spread God’s love. The group is looking forward to meeting up with local care facilities and food pantries to assist wherever they are needed.

They know that God planted a seed in them and that they are to grow into mighty trees whose branches reach out to those around them and show them the love of God through their actions and words.
