Visit to Heifer Project Farm in Massachusetts
The Heifer Project collects money to help farmers in underdeveloped countries by donating animals. The first offspring is given by the recipient to a neighboring farmer.
"Pass on the Gift"We learned the 7 Ms of benefits from animal farming - meat, milk, material (for clothing), money, manure, muscle (animal power) and motivation. Afterwards, we helped with milking goats, moving cows from one pasture to another and fed a camel and a pig.
During the summer we can stay a week at Camp Fowler. During the mornings there are Bible-based learning experiences, in the afternoon there is swimming, canoeing, hiking etc. and at night we play some fun games together and sing songs at the campfire (weather permitting).
Bi-annual Senior Youth Mission Trip in Machias, Maine
We worked with youth groups from all over the country and several different denominations to restore houses for low-income senior citizens. It was great to see the happy faces of the home owners after we finished painting the outside of a house, not to mention the feeling of accomplishment after doing such a job.
