High School Mexico Mission Trip:
"We traveled with a group of High School Youth to Juarez, Mexico in March to help build a house. The trip was very successful.  We finished the house we were working on, built some great relationships with some amazing people (including the family whose house we worked on), and experienced a culture very different from ours here in St. Louis." - Daniel Shanks, Director of Youth and Young Adults.
