Mission work is not new to the CYG but is in a sort of rebirth. In Acts 1:8, Jesus is meeting with the Apostles in Jerusalem and He told them they would be His witnesses in Jerusalem, in all of Judea and Samaria and to the end of the earth. In the summer of 2011, this verse became a sort of theme for us. We began the summer with a small door knocking campaign here in Covington and witnessed record attendance at VBS. The following week a group of youths travelled to Dry Ridge, Kentucky to assist the Grant County Church of Christ with their VBS and conduct another door knocking campaign. Finally at the end of June, several teens travelled to Liberia, Costa Rica with YES II, a youth mission trip with Latin American Missions under the oversite of the Forrest Park Church of Christ in Valdosta, GA for yet another effort at spreading the message of Christ's love. Truly "the fields are white for harvest" and the Covington Youth Group is committed to the development of Christians who find joy in "bringing in the sheaves."
