About Your Journey!
Midwest Mission has few staff, so the vast majority of our mission is carried out by missionaries. Midwest Mission needs & loves its missionaries. Anyone from the age of 11 and up are welcome to join our Mission!
There are many ways in which you can be a part of the Mission at Midwest Mission. You can serve:
- A day
- A week
- Or anything in between.
At Midwest Mission, we strive to accommodate a wide variety of ability levels, from sit down work to manual labor. While at Midwest Mission, missionaries will:
- Pack kits
- Sort items
- Help with mailings
- Build desks
- Repair bicycles & sewing machines
- Help load/unload supplies
- Or whatever the current requested needs are at the time
