James and Evelyn Jones left Mansfield on July 5, 2014 for the fourth trip to Dryden, Ontario Canada, on a mission trip. A large group of people went on this mission trip, to work at Vacation Bible School at one of the Dryden city parks.

At least 60 children were enrolled. There were puppet shows, games, snacks, etc. Also, James brought his cross materials, and showed each child how to make their own cross.

There were 13 people saved on this mission trip. With the help of Jesus, James led five of these people to Jesus. James said that he received lots of blessings from this mission trip.

Evelyn made 98 teddy bears and also some bracelets for the children. The kids really loved the teddy bears and were walking around hugging them.

A cookout was held on the grounds of FBC in Dryden and there were over 400 people who came to eat and enjoy the church services.

James also got to see Travis, his friend, and his mother, Michelle. Travis also helped James set up the table for VBS, so the kids could make their own crosses, and Travis made one for himself. Michelle also helped to hand out bracelets at the cookout. Evelyn helped prepare and serve food that evening.

On the way back home they stopped in Duluth, MN and spent some time there.

James said this was the best mission trip he has ever been on.

They were on the tour bus for 36 hours and 2,400 miles.
