Monday, September 19, 2011 - Friday, September 21, 2012
Application Due Date: 
15 June, 2011

Come walk with us as we live out InnerCHANGE’s commitments in the Westlake/McArthur Park neighborhood of Los Angeles. Our neighbors are mostly Mexican & Central American Latinos, Mayan Central Americans and those living in local convalescent homes. You will spend this year getting to know these neighbors, loving them and serving them as an integral part of our team. The Lord has recently been birthing a vision within us to plant a farm in our neighborhood (Jeremiah 29:5-7). A farm as an environment to cultivate leaders as we cultivate the land together. A farm for the production of healthy food for families and to share fresh produce and flowers with the sick in the convalescent homes. We are working to realize that vision, we have no land yet but are in the preliminary phase of research. Come help us realize the vision!
