Packing event gives you and your family a reason to travel

By May 2, 2012

USA (MNN) — Summer means more free time and vacation for a lot of Americans, and the season is quickly approaching. And although lounging in the sun is a welcome break after months of hard work, wouldn't it be great to do something with a purpose this summer?

Global Aid Network, or GAiN USA, has just the opportunity for you and your family or a small group to pack up, leave, and pack some more.

This June 18-23, GAiN is hosting a Mission Packing Project at their Distribution Center in Mt. Joy, Pennsylvania. Hundreds of volunteers will gather to pack shoes, clothing, food, seeds and more.

The packing itself is invigorating, surrounded by so many brothers and sisters engaging in Kingdom work, but the purpose behind it is even more exciting. The aid being packed will be shipped all across the globe to those in need, maybe to famine survivors in Africa's Horn, for example. As believers distribute it, they build relationships and opportunities to share Christ.

Consider taking your family on a trip to Pennsylvania this summer if you can. You can help for the whole week, or for just a few days. It's up to you how you help, but GAiN can use every bit of it.
