Norwood missionary on extended South American journey

Matt Hursh, 2008 graduate of Norwood High School, left Saturday, September 18 for a five month mission trip to South America. He will spend the first three months in Puerto Madryn, Argentina participating in Discipleship Training School under the direction of Youth With A Mission (YWAM), then is tentatively scheduled to go to Peru for the next two months. This will be his fourth international mission trip - during his last trip in January, Matt was in Haiti when the devastating earthquake struck. Matt is actively involved at Grace United Methodist Church on Slane Avenue where he serves with the youth program, praise team, and administrative council.

The funding for this trip was provided by donations from Grace United Methodist Church, Zion United Church of Christ, friends and family. Click here to follow Matt on his journey at his web page and blog site.
