Emotional Send Off

Posted by Team Leader on

I woke up this morning knowing that we would be saying goodbye to the kids, but it wasn’t something I wanted to do. As I walked down to breakfast, it hit me that these kids were leaving. I saw them bring their things from the cabins to the main area and it started to sink in that we would...

Travel Day

Posted by Team Leader on

We got up at the crack of dawn to be at the airport at 4a.m. for our flight that left Pittsburgh. As we checked our bags this morning, we realized that we forgot to mark a checked bag. However, the issue was not fully resolved--we don't have the bag, but we are trusting that God will still...

Home Sweet Home (Hungary Trip)

Posted by Scott Cowden on
