"My name is Megan and I'm a freshman. I came on a VMY service trip not knowing anyone and just needed to renew my faith and help others who can't do things for themselves. It's brought me closer to the Lord than I have ever been before. The whole experience is just life changing and I am honored I got this opportunity." -Megan D.
Have you ever thought a mission trip would be fun? Wondered about working or being with the homeless, a street person, or someone down on their luck? Have you ever wondered how they got to be in the situation they are in or wondered how you might add joy to their lives? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you might want to join us on our week long mission trip, Operation Overhaul!
Operation Overhaul mission/retreat is held every summer and is open to participants across the US. The event encompasses a balance of formation and service work. The four pillars of VMY; prayer/Marian, fellowship, community, and formation are an integral part of our time together on the trip. Understanding, once faith has been received, it is necessary to give as Jesus states in Matthew 10:8, "Without cost you have received, without cost you must give."
This year we went to Indianapolis, Indiana! The locations of the past Operation Overhauls include: Pineville, WV; New Orleans, LA; Chicago, IL; South Bend, IN; Springfield, MO; Baxter Springs, KS; Little Rock, AR; Springfield, MO; Rosenberg, TX; Nashville, TN; Indianapolis, IN; Kansas City, MO; North Little Rock, AR; and Branson, MO.
