Operation GO

LLHS Summer Mission Trips are organized under the name Operation GO: a mission-minded program to place LLHS students 16+ years old into various teams to GO and share the Gospel! #WarriorsGO
COVID-19 update

After loads of advice, prayers, set backs, new challenges, and current news around our country, the decision has been made to cancel our Operation Go Team trips this summer.

"I feared this moment was coming. I know this deeply hurts, and is on top of so many other disappointments. Still, I am convinced it is the right decision to make. My heart is heavy," says PH. "I ask for your understanding, prayers, and support for our program moving forward. I pray that our churches, missions, and schools continue to find strength in our loving Savior and resolve to continue the work of his Kingdom with fresh confidence."

Stay tuned to this page for follow up news about ways we can and will support the missions we would have traveled to serve, and ways Operation Go will proceed into the future.

Team Salt Lake City: CANCELLED
Salt Lake City, Idaho • “Truth in Love” Witnessing to Mormons

From PH: We unfortunately learned the Salt Lake Team has had their trip cancelled. This trip was the earliest and one of the largest teams. This trip is unique in that it is completely based on Conference Room Hotel training and Door to Door efforts. The people of Truth in Love assured us that this decision was not made hastily and was "made based on love, not on fear." 
I still see them as a team. I have initial hopes to regroup them if possible to serve or be a team together, even if it is in some small local way after the Lord stems this current trouble.
