Two Mennonite Church B.C. youth groups were busy this past summer learning and serving others through service trips:
* Five youths from First United Mennonite in Vancouver went to work from July 12-17 at Trek, a summer camp held in conjunction with King Road Mennonite Brethren Church of Abbotsford and South Hill Community Church in Vancouver. The young people were leaders-in-training, and did tasks such as washing dishes, serving food, cleaning outhouses, supervising campers and helping run activities, as well as other general labour jobs.
* Nineteen youths and sponsors from Emmanuel Mennonite Church in Abbotsford spent a week with the Discovering Opportunities for Outreach and Reflection (DOOR) program in Hollywood, Calif., from July 18-24, helping at homeless shelters and food banks.
