Outreach Ministries announces a mission trip for 2018 to the island nation of Madagascar.
Sally Harwood will lead a group of eight to 12 on an exploration of this ecologically diverse country off the southeast coast of Africa, April 6-18. "We will visit with our mission partners, Dan and Elizabeth Turk, and see many of their mission projects live and in action," Sally says. "We will bring greetings from Fifth Avenue to our sister church, the Church of Jesus Christ in Madagascar. And we will take a few days to see the lemurs."
The Turks made a rare joint appearance at Fifth Avenue in October and spoke about a number of projects that our mission dollars are helping to support, including an extensive fruit tree cultivation program, development of safe drinking water resources, environmental education and HIV/AIDS prevention.
Cost for the trip is expected to be $3,000 to $3,500, depending on transportation.
The deadline to register is Sunday, Jan. 28. For details, contact Sally at email@example.com.
