Chris and Heather Strack are joining their church, Journey Christian Church, on a mission trip to Lighthouse Retreat in Destin, FL. At Lighthouse families battling childhood cancer are able to take a week off and reconnect the family unit. Chris and Heather will serve the families all week by cleaning their rooms, playing with the kids (can you say beach time!), getting to know the family, praying with them and for them, serving their meals, and the list goes on and on. One of the biggest ways we serve the families is through financial donations. The families accepted to go to Lighthouse Retreat don't pay a penny! That is where the Hopewell Moose Lodge come in! The lodge donated $750 to assist in their journey. The total cost is $5000.00 to send a family battling childhood cancer on this awesome retreat. The lodge offered to assist Chris and Heather with their travel but in true Moose tradition the couple feels it is their calling to burden the cost and vacation to provide relief for those in need.

Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life." John 8:12
