Chicago 2011 Mission Trip

Chicago:  July 2011

On July 16, 2011, our team flew into Chicago's Midway Airport, and drove a short distance to Munster, Indiana, where 21 of us shared an "cozy" 4-bedroom, lower level (more commonly referred to as a basement) home. That served as our base, as we sent out three construction teams that week to repair homes that had been damaged by Hurricane Ike in 2008. Hanging doors, laying floors, putting up sheetrock, painting, etc., was how they spent their week. Our fourth team, made up of 12-15 year olds, served the community through the local ARC Center, The Salvation Army in East Chicago, and the Community Environmental Center. Despite the 100 degree mid-week temperatures, we managed to squeeze in some fun in Chicago, posing in front of the "Bean" in Millennium Park, pigging out on deep-dish Pizza at Paizano's, and a taking an evening cruise up the Chicago River from Navy Pier!

What a beautiful city, a GREAT TEAM, and an awesome trip!
