I've just been notified by Rev. Keith Titus that the organizational meeting for the October2-8 Re-Member adult mission trip to Pine Ridge Reservation has been scheduled for3 pm on Sunday, August 1 at Gaylord First Congregational Church (218 W. 2nd Street, 1 block south of Main at corner of Old-27). Anyone interested in participating must have submitted the $350 registration fee and a completed 2010 Registration Agreement to me a week in advance of that meeting.
Specifically, please review the logistical and cultural background information at the following link:
http://www.re-member.org/docs/2010%20Registration%20Packet.pdf and complete the registration forms on pages 12 and 14-15: Form 2(a) Adult Medical, Form 3 Release and Waiver of Liability, and Form 4 Skills Assessment. These forms and the registration fee should be routed through me, so that I can then complete the Group Organizer paperwork and submit all of our group's paperwork together to Re-Member.
There are still scholarships available to cover registrations fees for two individuals. Please contact me right away if you are interested in applying for one.
I hope that you will prayerfully consider this exciting opportunity to experience the cultural richness of our Lakota sisters and brothers and be of practical help with their ministries.
If you have any questions or concerns about the trip, please feel free to contact me.
Grace & Peace,
