The High School Youth Group from St. John's Lutheran Church from Cypress is spending four days serving through LINC Houston's Mission Program. They are staying at Our Redeemer Lutheran Church, which they are also helping to update with some new coats of paint. They previously served with LINC a few years back, and now are looking for a whole new experience, which is something LINC can offer.
Jon Zoch, St. John's Youth Minister, said this year he wanted his students to experience the diversity in God's Kingdom. This trip they are helping serve in multiple areas around Houston. They are helping with a Vacation Bible School, painting, and serving with different churches. They are also going on a Nehemiah Vision Tour with Pastor Kim to learn about the different religions and people who are living in the Houston area. Zoch says that it's a good experience for the students to be able to learn about and see their city.
The students have also enjoyed their meals, which aren't what they are normally accustomed to, but is more traditional Mexican as opposed to Tex-Mex. Zoch says there have been no complaints and lots of compliments.
