Twenty students from Years 8-11 and four staff experienced the joy of serving God together on the College’s first Regional Queensland Mission Trip in 2017.
They gave back to the local communities in Charleville and Miles, helping out with a kid’s holiday program, painting and cleaning, as well as helping in an aged care facility and leading Friday night youth.
The staff enjoyed travelling with the students and working with them at the various mission opportunities.
Regularly, the communities that the students visited, commented on the excellent behaviour of the Redlands College students, who were consistently polite and respectful. This is a huge tribute to the parents and caregivers of these teens.
The Pastors at Miles were very encouraged by the way the Redlands College students worked while painting the church, cleaning, and doing whatever was asked, always with joy and enthusiasm. It was reported that our students were a strong witness and example to the young people there.
