Mission work has always been the major thrust of the church, be it at home or abroad. When we examine our finances we need always keep in mind that all the moneys we spend are ultimately directed toward mission work. 

God is doing some pretty amazing things. Opportunities are right in front of us, and all around. This is an exciting time for Good Shepherd, as it always is when God is leading!

2017 Summer Mission Trips

2016 National Youth Gathering--New Orleans, LA

2016 Adult Mission Trip to Haiti

The HLMS mission team currently in Haiti has been having a wonderful experience. This team, consisting of HLMS President, Pastor Robert Nowak and his wife Bonnie, HLMS Vice President Jack Hunter and his wife Pam, as well as others from their home in Minnesota have been busy working alongside Haitian friends at numerous locations. They have spent time at the orphanage, begun an incredible painting project in Leogane and delivered much needed supplies. Please keep them in your prayers for continued health and safety during the remainder of their trip. 

2015 Youth Mission Trip to Kansas City, KS

Sunday 7/19/2015: After being sent off by their families and Julie, the team makes the 7 hour drive to Kansas City, KS. Arriving safety, they get settled in and attend their orientation meeting.

Monday 7/20/2015: Awake and ready for a day of serving the Lord. Well, maybe, it looks for sure like Jordan, Jess, and Aaron are. We'll see if Ted sends any pics later of Krista, Michael and Andrew looking more awake :-)

Tuesday 7/21/2015: It looks like they really worked hard today. From the pictures it also looks like they were at a lot of places getting things done.

Wednesday 7/22/2015: They have been sending pics all day! It look like they are working hard and lovin' their time together and in Kansas. We are missing them greatly here at home, but the rewards are greater. Keep them in your prayers! 

Thursday 7/23/2015: From the pictures Ted sent, it looks like this morning started out in quiet reflection. What a peaceful way to start their day.
