Zion's youth (ZIGGY - Zion's Inspired Group of God's Youth) participated again this year in a servant event in Idaho this July 2011. Idaho Servant Adventures is part of Lutherhaven Ministries in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, a non-profit Christian ministry operated by Lutheran congregations in Idaho, Washington and Oregon. The servant event included evening programs, devotions and Bible studies; leadership development; service opportunities; and wild outdoor adventure. Many of those served live in some of the most disadvantaged counties in the nation. Children, the elderly, and the disabled are frequent recipients of service. In the typical Servant Adventure week, participants work four days on a service team of 5 or 6 teens and one adult. Every team member is given one of six important leadership roles, based on individual skills and interests. Service teams head out each morning with a sack lunch for the daily projects, returning to camp mid-afternoon for leadership debriefs, recreational and relaxation options, and fantastic evening programming.
There are many more wonderful photos on the Ziggy Facebook photo wall as well.
