2017 Mission Trip: June 17-24

2017 Mission Trip: June 17-24


Since 2008 Lutheran High School has developed its World Mission program to provide opportunities for our students to engage in acts of service around the world, embracing people of different cultures and needs.   We provide critical support to ministries that are established in the area that we serve, and will continue the work of the Gospel long after we leave.  We have established significant relationships with Camp Penuel in Costa Rica and Camp Lutherhaven in Idaho.

This year we will be returning to Camp Lutherhaven to serve in their Champ Camp program.  Champ Camp is a chance for children and youth with special needs to come and experience all that camp has to offer. The Champ Campers we work alongside have a wide variety of special needs and are looking for caring servant friends during their time at camp. They’ll drink up all the love we can give ’em!

Embracing people in a difficult setting demands that we give ourselves to our neighbor. To do so, while at Champ Camp we will…

  • LEARN about the different specialties we will work with;

  • HONOR the institutions and systems integral to Lutherhaven and Champ Camp;

  • FOSTER friendships with peers that we serve alongside at Champ Camp

  • EXPLORE the unique features of Idaho’s ecosystem and geography;

  • Actively SERVE as representatives of our faith and tradition.

We are excited about the work God has placed before us. In order for this work to be successful, we are committed to finding partners who will support our team. Our team has two support goals:

  1. Enlist faithful “Thessalonians” (see 1 Thess. 5:16-19) who will continually commend to God through prayer the work of Camp Lutherhaven, and our short-term mission team.

  2. Raise a team of faithful “Philippians” (see Phil. 4:14-20) to help us meet the financial obligation necessary for each person on our team to participate in the mission. The per person cost of this mission is $1200.

In Matthew 10, Jesus sends out His disciples in twos to preach the Gospel in a “short-term” experience. It is our prayer and desire that we follow God’s model in helping people experience the wonders of Jesus through short term missions.  We know that God will also work in our lives to strengthen our faith as He did in that of the disciples. We thank you for your consideration in supporting our trip!
