Smiles Virtual Mission Trips.
There are a number of us in the Parish who are poised to go on Mission Trips
to Smiles in Romania once it is possible. It is now over twelve months since
people have been able to take part in these trips and they are sorely missed by
the team in Romania. It will be at least June before the trips can restart so
in the meantime there are three Virtual Mission Trips organised. This is an
excellent way to find out what a Mission Trip involves and perhaps encourage
you to take the next step of joining a real trip once it becomes possible.
Follow this link to the Smiles Website to find out more: https://www.thesmilesfoundation.org/2021-virtual-mission-trips/
