Wind River Lutheran Mission - Fort Washakie, Wyoming
Dates: June 16-23, 2017
The Wind River Lutheran Mission is located in Fort Washakie Wyoming, just outside Lander on the Wind River Indian reservation. Wind River is that native land of the Shoshone nation and is also home to the Arapaho tribe. Fort Washakie is named after Chief Washakie, the only Native American to receive a full military funeral. The Wind River area is beautiful, wide open country with a rich history. The grave of Sacajawea grave can also be found in Fort Washakie.
For the past several years, members of Trinity have journeyed to Wyoming to conduct Vacation Bible School, as well as to do construction and repairs to the Wind River Lutheran Mission and the homes of families it serves. We will be returning In June of 2017 to lead another Vacation Bible School and continue some minor work projects. This mission trip is ideal for whole families. Whether you are interested in helping with the Vacation Bible School, or if you would like to get busy with work projects in and around the mission, Wind River Lutheran Mission Pastor Greg Sonnenschein will have several tasks waiting for us in Wind River!
