The BOUNCE staff is busy preparing to welcome all of our churches serving in Waco this week! We are expecting about 145 students and leaders to be coming in for our Waco mission. Churches participating are Christoval Baptist Church, First Baptist Church Kingwood, Southwest Park Baptist Church of Abilene and Woodridge Baptist Church of Kingwood. Students and staff will be lodged and fed at Columbus Avenue Baptist Church.
This week, teams will be rehabilitating homes all over the city of Waco. In order to make this happen, BOUNCE has teamed up with Waco Community Development and Waco Regional Baptist Association Churches. We appreciate all our partners do for us. A week of BOUNCE wouldn't be possible without the cooperation of many organizations.
This week's coordinators are Aaron Austin (Mission Coordinator), Mark Haveman (Construction Coordinator), Scott Rhodes (Local Logistics Coordinator) and Brian Pearce (Worship Speaker). The summer collegiate staff is made up of Kyle Crim, Stephen Engstrom, Julia Siebelink and Amy Valenta. All staff members are excited to serve our student missionaries this week. It is our prayer that each student and leader is drawn closer to Christ this week. We hope that through service, students can take what they learn at BOUCNE and apply it in their own homes, schools and communities.
Waco is the second BOUNCE mission of the summer. We're looking forward to restoring hope, rebuilding communities and reflecting Christ this week and for the rest of the summer!
