Buy Stock in a Young Person Doing Mission

The Senior High Youth of the Diocese of Bethlehem is making another mission trip to New Orleans from July 25th to August 1st 2009. They are going to be doing various things once they are are there: the 16 and older group is going to be working with gutting and rebuilding houses while the under 16 group is going to be focusing on landscaping and projects with soup kitchens, shelters, schools, etc. Each participant is paying a personal donation to go on the trip, but they also need to raise funds for rest of the trip. Once again they are seeking donations and selling "stocks." Each stock costs 10 dollars and they enitle the "stockholder" to one free ticket to a slide show dinner after the trip at a church in the Diocese and a postcard from the young people while they are down in NOLA.

Our own Jensen Appleman is taking part in the trip. To "buy stock" in Jensen, please make a check out to "Trinity Church - Youth Mission Trip" (wriite "Stock" in the memo line) and give it to Jensen, or place in the offering plate or send it to the parish office. You will recieve a "Stock Certificate" by mail from the church or in person from Jensen. (If you wish to donate without buying stock, simply write "Donation" in the memo line.) Jensen will be in church on Sunday, June 7 to sell stock in person at the Mission Table.
