Experience Midwest Mission   |   AUGUST 27TH   |   HANDS-ON MISSION EVENT IN ANKENY, IOWA

Help us pack 8,400 Rice Meal bags that will feed 50,400 people in Ukraine.

Learn about the different ways you can put your faith into action and be the hands and feet of Jesus in a practical way. We will be showing how we pack our different kits, sharing simple ways to get involved, explaining the disaster response ministry, and packing rice meal bags for Ukraine.

You will see how you can partner with Midwest Mission by doing easy mission activities like these at your church. This is a great way to invigorate congregations and attract new people.


Help us raise $16,800 to fund the meals that will be packed. Each meal costs 34 cents. Fun and experiential activities are a great way to get other people involved. Donate to the project:


All meals are going to Ukrainian refugees to meet basic needs in war-torn areas. We need your help to get the word out. This is for those both in church and not involved in church to experience the joy that comes from service. Visit for more info.
