A little bit of background about this mission trip. This is an organized, yearly Disciples of Christ event that began in 2011 with nearly 80 in attendance. We joined the gathering 3 years ago. Each year this mission event has grown and last year it was split into two separate locations because of the high interest. Once again, this year there are two sites: St. Louis this week and San Marcos, TX next week. There are over 200 of us working together here in St. Louis.
