The Maumee Watershed District is hosting a Volunteer in Mission, Early Response Team trip to Houston, Texas April 7-13. We are going to Houston to assist with Hurricane Harvey clean-up and rebuild. We are inviting anyone from the district who wants to be in mission with Rev. Scot Ocke and Rev. Rae Lynn Schleif to e-mail Rae Lynn rschleif [at] wocumc.org and let her know that you are “in!” The final day to sign up for this mission trip is Wednesday, February 28.
The cost of the mission trip is from $500-$700. This guesstimate range. We have heard back from the Disaster Relief Director and we will be housed in a local church, so the price has dropped. We still don’t know about cooking our own meals, which is the reason for the price still being completely confirmed. The price includes; air travel to Texas, van rental and gas for transportation while in Houston, meals, water, and other incidental items. We are working with the ERT-VIM leaders in the Texas Annual Conference and as we have more details, we will share those.
