Mission Trips

  The 2016 Mission Trip was June 12-18, and we worked with Habitat for Humanity in Lake County helping rebuild after the devastating 2015 Valley Fire.  Eight of us from Ukiah got the pleasure of going over to help Habitat in their rebuilding efforts.  We spent five days completing a variety of projects including putting in a trench to provide well water to a house; finding, uncovering and capping water pipes; building a fence; and clearing and organizing one of Habitat's storage units. We couldn't have done it without all the support from the FPCU church family which included prayer, giving and helping with the tri-tip fundraiser. See the July Presbeat Newsletter for more on this mission trip. You can learn more about the rebuilding efforts in Lake County at Habitat's website http://lakehabitat.org/

Our previous Mission Trip was to Waco, Texas.  We traveled to a farm and learned sustainable farming.  This farm is part of an organization called World Hunger Relief.  This organization teaches people from developing countries how to farm in a way that is low cost, uses the materials at hand, and will last from year to year.  Then the people whom they train go back to their home communities to put these ideas into practice and teach others how to farm sustainably.  Former FPCU church members, Randy and Amy Fish, are now ministering on the World Hunger Relief farm in Texas.  It is their calling in life to help run this farm so people in other countries can have the tools they need to live off the land where they live.  You can learn more about World Hunger Relief on their websitehttp://worldhungerrelief.org/
