MS Mission Possible 5: “Get Down” Luke 19:1-10

MS Mission Possible 5  in Duluth/Atanta this past week, June 28-July 2, was an amazing God-filled experience. The theme this summer was “Get Down” from Luke 19:1-10. MS Youth Groups from Pleasant Hill (the host church) Harpeth Pres in Brentwood, TN; First Pres of Shelbyville in Shelbyville, TN; Davidson College Pres/Davidson Pres in Davidson, NC and Swarthmore Pres in Media, PA (a total of 58 youth and 14 adults) came together for a week of mission work, worship, devotionals, recreation and educational activities on poverty/hunger issues:
