HiGH SCHOOL Mission Trip

Mission Trip Dates

June 30 - July 8

“The Colonia” is a village parallel with the U.S. / Mexican border near McAllen, Texas. Over 500 families have found themselves with nowhere to go but here, living in dismal conditions. Missionaries Bruce and Paula Hepburn have been serving these people for almost a decade; building homes, teaching them skills, and providing needs similar to “Helping Hands”. When they arrived people were stand-offish of each other and there was a lack of community. Now when neighbors see each other they embrace and share whatever they have with each other. This transformation comes from the Hepburns’ commitment to walk beside these people for so long and share the love and hope Christ has for all of his people. We have an opportunity to partner with them and join in their ministry. Our missional goal is to help in the local ministry as they serve the people of “The Colonia”.

Sunset's High School Ministry is here to help guide teens through their discipleship with Jesus Christ and build a foundation of faith for the future. This is possible by leading teens to:

Study & Understand The Word and independently respond in a way that is transformative: impacts their faith & life choices.
Get involved in their church & God’s purpose and plan for their lives, through their relationship with Jesus Christ.
Develop a sense of belonging & attachment to Him, resulting in seeking the Holy Spirit’s direction and empowerment to engage with others in their faith. Connect with people through fellowship with their peers, church, service to others and the community; ensuring a humble and Christ-like attitude. 

Ultimately, teens will make their lives less about themselves and more about Jesus.

Message from Rick

This last year has been a whirlwind for me. My son was born premature on March 16th. But the real story starts a week before. We were sent to meet with a cardiologist at OHSU and were told that Josiah would need heart surgery, to expand his aorta, when we was born. I can't put into words the image of watching your 3 lb child rushed from the womb to an oxygen mask. Many were praying for us and Josiah. Thank you for your prayers. I was told that I was very content in God that week by fellow staff and youth. That I seemed at peace. The truth is that the only thing running through my mind was "how easily I've taken God's Son; should I not be willing to give Him mine?" When my dad got the news about Josiah needing surgery he was on a mission trip in Ghanna, Africa. In the village where he was the people prayed for Josiah. My dad has later told me that you have not experienced prayer until you have prayed with these people. They prayed not that Josiah's surgery go well but that God give him a brand new heart, literally. Before surgery the cardiologist had scheduled another scan so that they could see the issue better now that Josiah was out of the womb. After viewing the scan, the doctors informed us that they could not find a problem with his heart, that in their words "his heart was normal." I don't think so. The cardiologist could not give me an explanation of how or why there was a difference between the scans. Or even say that the first scan was mis-diagnosed. Now I am left with so many different emotions. I trusted that God would see over the surgery but I did not foresee (pray or trust for) this. My pride feels like the boy who cried wolf. My willingness to rely on God feels like Abraham, prepared to surrender Issac. Now that He has spared him, what am I suppose to feel? Read the full story on my Dad's blog about prayer the size of a mustard seed.
