“Our purpose was to garner favor and open doors for the gospel to go forth. The kids crossed many societal barriers, making new friends and serving with the passion of Jesus Christ. Our eyes were opened to a world who’s only hope is Jesus.” – Nicki McKee, chaperone – Alabama, 2018
“Before going to sleep, we all met outside the cabins to pray. Every team member thanked God for something He had done that day, including our safe flight, healthy kids, and great food.”- Cass Henderson, chaperone – Belize, 2018
“The commonality of our faith in Christ being the only hope for the world connected us in a way that was powerful”- Lisa Tooker, parent chaperone – Belize, 2018.
“Our team had a blast coming together to become the hands and feet of Jesus this week. They truly became one team and loved their neighbors. What a wonderful group and trip!” – Christine Fox, chaperone – Costa Rica, 2018
“The Las Vegas trip enabled our team to love and serve the lost and marginalized. Through a series of activities, we were able to care for foster children, search for teenagers entrapped in human trafficking, share a meal with the poor, and proclaim the gospel with anyone who would listen.” – Nick Barker, chaperone – Las Vegas, 2018
“At the Nashville Rescue Mission and spent time serving part of one of the largest bodies of homeless people in the U.S. We’ve never seen men happier about serving in a cafeteria or eating hamburgers, potato chips, fries and apple sauce. Watching the students smile, speak, and serve was a great experience.” – Donny Johnson, chaperone – Nashville, 2018
“Although there was much we could not always understand – the love of Jesus knows no barriers.”- Stephanie MacDowell, chaperone – Managua, Nicaragua, 2018
“Our kids learned about digging footings and how to mix concrete – over 200 wheel barrels of it. Our new motto: mixing concrete builds character!” Sharon Komar, chaperone – Rocky Point, 2018
“A small group of students met four homeless men outside of Temple Square. Praise the Lord, two of the men put their trust in Jesus.” Trent Whitehead, chaperone – Salt Lake City, 2018
“The Yucatán trip was an amazing opportunity for our students to minister and pray with individuals in a small medical facility in Valladolid, Mexico. The students were able to participate and observe very extensive medical procedures, in addition, to assist in building a house in the village for a single mom of six children. It was amazing to see the Holy Spirit work through our team!” – Jeremy Richards, chaperone – Yucatán, 2018
