Each week for 12 weeks, we’ll release a video featuring a Messiah-supported mission location,
along with a health tip from Messiah’s Health Ministry Team.
 
Would you rather do something other than walk? Great!
20 minutes of any aerobic exercise equals one mile, so that counts too! Playing soccer, yoga, biking, etc!
 
 
 
 
Beginning June 8, you can start tracking your miles right here.

JUNE 8-14 : LINCOLN TO HAITI : 2,086 MILES

HEALTH TIP: HEAT HYDRATION FOR CHILDREN
Summer heat can affect children much quicker than adults.  Sign include fatigue, thirst, dry lips and tongue. If kids wait to drink when they are thirsty, they are already dehydrated. Best tip to prevent this is to drink cool water early and often. From the American Academy of Pediatrics.
