Geneseo Grace Church youth on mission trip

A group of young people from Grace United Methodist Church in Geneseo combined volunteer efforts with fun on a recent trip to the Midwest Distribution Center in Pawnee (IL). After delivering supplies to the Center where they also spent volunteer hours, the group traveled to Six Flags, St. Louis, MO, for a day of fun before returning to Geneseo.

Several adults accompanied the youth on the trip.

According to Jackie Mickey, one of the adults on the trip, the Midwest Mission distributes kits, resources and supplies after receiving a request. The supplies are sent locally, nationally and internationally to those in need during times of crisis.”

All supplies are given free of charge regardless of gender, race or religion.

“We also took 30 student kits, four treadle sewing machines and several bikes which they will refurbish and ship,” Mickley said.

The student kits were assembled by Grace Church members during a previous “Grace in Action” Sunday.”

Midwest Distribution Center sends items wherever needed. They say “around the world and around the corner.
