The western branches of Milal Mission will be holding a service camp for those who are disabled.
Branches in southern California, northern California, Seattle, and Vancouver are among some of the branches that are coming together to hold the "Camp AGAPE" that will be taking place from June 25 to 27, themed, "Let's See the World!" The camp will be taking place at the University of California, Santa Barbara. The theme verse for this year's camp is "You are the light of the world," based on Matthew 5:14.
The mission organizations PPOG, a worship ministry, and TRAC, a youth community service group, will also be participating in the camp.
"We're planning on having a feet-washing again, something we've done and we've been blessed through since the camp in 2013," said one of the Milal organizers. "We're hoping that the action of a volunteer serving those who are disabled by personally washing their feet would allow participants to experience Christ's love, and that all would become united as one body past the differences of having disabilities or not."
Milal Mission is an organization that focuses on serving those with disabilities, and holds various programs including Camp AGAPE, and Class AGAPE, a free Saturday school for students with developmental disabilities, helping them to develop their intellectual and social abilities. Class AGAPE is available in Fullerton, Los Angeles, East Los Angeles, Irvine, and Torrance.
