We are offering a literacy mission trip to Marfa, Texas which is located in one of the twenty poorest US Counties. We will be working with the local school system there to help children and their families by providing a two-day reading camp. The camp will include the building of bookcases, the opportunity for children to learn good reading skills and the chance for them to receive books, including books about faith. We will be working not only with the school system in Marfa but also with Literacy Connexus, which is a Texas Baptist Ministry focused on connecting faith with literacy needs. The trip is open to no more than 10 participants. The anticipated cost covering travel, lodging and most meals is $750.
For more information or to register, please contact Rickey Letson or Tommy Cox.
The deadline to express your interest is Tuesday, June 30th.
