2017 NYAC VIM YAM Ghana Mission: Getting Ready to Bring Hope!
This Friday, February 17th, seventeen youth and four adults leave for the annual Youth Ambassadors Mission (YAM) mission trip. Destination: Ghana! Each Fall, local congregations from the New York Annual Conference are invited to recommend a youth to participate in the next YAM journey. Since 2005, over 200 youth have worked in Antigua, Bolivia, Cambodia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, and Ghana.
Days for Girls kits, which provide reusable feminine hygiene supplies that can last a girl for years, and help to keep her in school. Many of the kits have been assembled by church volunteers and members from NYAC congregations, and other United Methodist congregations.
The group will blog about their trip here, at nyacvim.blogspot.com. Please share the joy and wonder of this mission trip with others, and pray for their success!
