LINC San Antonio
LINC'd Through Partnerships
Linking people to people, and linking people to Christ
The month of July was full of blessings for us at LINC San Antonio. We hosted two more youth mission teams through our partnership with Can Do Ministries. LINC has partnered with Can Do for the past three years, and we have been able to host many of these teams. They come, spend a week in San Antonio, and serve alongside of us. They help us to grow existing relationships, and enable us to forge new partnerships with people they meet along the way. They also do some great work in our city!
During these two weeks we hosted a total of 42 servants of Christ. Because these two weeks overlapped the National Youth Gathering, we did not have many special LINC programs happening, and sent the teams to some of our partner organizations. At River City Christian School our volunteers did yard work to help the school recover from the spring rain and flooding, and they cleaned and painted the building to prepare for the school year. While just doing this manual labor, the groups got to know the staff of the school and the people they were serving. The weeks wrapped up with a kickball game and pizza party between the school and our youth team! Groups also spent time at Daily Bread Ministries leading their summer children's program. The partnership we have with Daily Bread is new, and we are trying to figure out how we can do more together. Our mission teams helped us to show the staff at Daily Bread what LINC is and what we have to offer. We are very excited to move forward in this partnership! The final work site for our teams was the Unicorn Center - a home for the developmentally disabled. We worked with them a couple of years ago, so our teams helped to remind them that we are still here for them.
Thank you to all who helped us prepare for these mission teams by helping with planning, donating food, and praying for them! We are already looking forward to another successful summer next year!
Don't forget about inviting LINC staff to come and speak with your group about ministry opportunities available to you!
