2017 Mission Trip to Sacramento New Mexico
Eight of St. Matthew's youth traveled to the Sacramento UMC Camp in New Mexico from June 11 to June 16, 2017, to help refurbish the camp. They really worked! The last day they were able to visit the White Sands National Monument.
They mixed cement and set posts.
Who were those masked men?
And they stacked wood!
Finally a day of fun!
