Gleanings for the Hungry Missions Trip

  • Directions to Gleanings

Registration will open again before September.

Click here for a video of an earlier YES! trek to Gleanings.

Since 2009 YES! has been taking annual week-long treks to Gleanings for the Hungry. in Dinuba, California, south of Fresno.

Beyond the very fulfilling work that is accomplished, the fellowship and spiritual encouragement are incredibly rich. Not to mention the wonderful food and accommodations!

Each winter adults serve at the Gleanings vegetable soup plant to mix dehydrated vegetables donated in bulk and mixed together to make a very nutritious soup mix.

The soup is packaged in quart and gallon plastic bags which are then packed in barrels or boxes and sent world wide with God's Word to help the poor and needy. Missionary organizations use the soup to reach families, in feeding programs, schools and orphanages.

Quilts are also made at Gleanings to send with the food.

Pull & Pray! Weed with us for a couple hours this Saturday!

  • Prayer and Fasting Mountain

Prayer Mountain

996 Lockhart Gulch Road - Scotts Valley

Saturday, May 6, 10 AM to Noon

followed by a light lunch

As you can imagine, with the volume of rain this winter and spring, weeds aplenty have sprung up on this beautiful campus dedicated to prayer.

Continue uphill and park near the main field. Wear grubbies, and please bring gloves and small weeding shovels/trowels, if you have them. Feel free to bring an extra set for those (like the students) who likely don't have them.

A quick RSVP to YES! will help us with our lunch count.

Several UCSC students from the Asian American Christian Fellowship plan to join us, so this is a great opportunity to get to know them, while serving together.

YES! Luncheon

  • Meeting @ McDonald's

Please note the time change---one week later than originally communicated. 

Our next monthly YES! luncheon will start out at McDonald's in Scotts Valley for an optional serve-yourself lunch and then off in a caravan by noon to Fasting Prayer Mountain, just a mile or so away. This beautiful spot, dedicated as a getaway for prayer and fasting, is an overlooked gem right here in Scotts Valley (near Mission Springs).

We hope you'll come for the rich fellowship and then want to return on your own later for some personal times of prayer and reflection. We'll meet there in the Small Chapel, situated on level ground with adjacent parking.

YES! Mexico: July 2015 Missions Trip to Rancho De Sus Niños

Consider joining YES! on our first missions trip outside US borders!

Rancho De Sus Niños is a multifaceted ministry located in eastern Tijuana near Tecate in Valle Redondo, just south of the US/Mexican border.

Through Rancho De Sus Niños, hundreds of lives are being touched each week. During our trip we will have the opportunity to minister to both the physical and spiritual needs of the people through Rancho's various ministries to the community of Tijuana.

Come touch the hearts of youth in need at Rancho's youth center, be a part impacting Mexico’s rising generation of leaders in Rancho's orphanage, daycare center, schools, and neighboring churches. For those with stronger physical capacity, participate in one of Rancho’s building projects; laying foundations, constructing, and giving form to the vision.

Please click here for more trip details. And please pray for our first YES! team, ages four to seventy-plus, hailing from three states and several churches.
