Migrant Camp Outreach
Harrisburg, PA
Teams are needed to assist church in reaching out to migrant families in Central Pennsylvania. There are as many as 2500 migrant workers in this area in several different camps. Teams will conduct three consecutive evening events (at a different camp each night) that would include supper and any variety of worship and/or entertainment events. Each event would have somewhere between 25-50 people. The gospel will be shared each night, as well as times of prayer, and spiritual encouragement. Other activities that team does is negotiable between the requestor and the team. Afternoons will see teams prepare for the evening events, including cooking the meal, putting together hygiene kits, etc. Mornings may see teams visiting, learning about, and prayer walking in the camps Teams may decide to collect and bring items to share with the families, such as hygiene items, coats for colder months, etc. Requestor will help team decide what might be needed. It would be great for team to have a couple of Spanish speakers – but, if not, the host church can provide those who can help in this. Teams can possibly stay at Volunteer House in Harrisburg, which has kitchen for the team to use to prepare meals. Note: Teams working with children and youth will be responsible for conducting professional background checks on all members over the age of 18. Team leader will be sent information from BOM concerning options for this.
Length of assignment: 4-5 Days
Preferred Dates: Spring-Fall 2024
Costs: Travel to PA, lodging, team food, funds for nightly suppers/supplies
