Lake City Community Church is sending a delegation of 45 members to Honduras today for a 10-day mission. A group of contractors led by Scott Gallagher will be helping to build a church, while a medical team that consists of local doctors, led by Dr. Mike Dixon, and several nurses will assist with practical health care services according to Pastor Mike Rima. The medical team has put together personal hygiene packs to distribute.
Another aspect of the outreach is a soccer camp for children that will culminate in a soccer tournament. Rebecca Klein will head up the soccer outreach. Youth Pastor Matt Morgan will lead the entire group.
“They’re very excited,” Rima said. “This is the first time we’ve sent this many overseas.”
The next trip will be Potomac, Mont., then in the spring to Tecate, Mexico. Next summer the church will go to the Kingdom of Swaziland in southern Africa, ground zero for the AIDS epidemic.
