After the rafting and camping trip, we settled into doing skills rotations and then specialization. I led the ministry rotation and specialization.
For rotation, we went to Missoula, Montana, touring different ministries in the city and learning about what they do. I don't have a lot of pictures from that, but here's the debrief circle at a coffee shop in Missoula:
For specialization, we went to Spokane, Washington, and helped out at two homeless ministries: Cup of Cool Water, which is a place for homeless youths to drop in and get help; and City Gate, which is a church that runs a drop-in place for homeless and low-income people of all ages. If you want to see a little more about their ministries, check out their websites: www.thecitygatespokane.org and www.cupofcoolwater.org.
Here are some pictures from specialization:
