MAS Youth Brothers' Trip to Arkansas
Alhamdulillah, a group of thirty male youth traveled to Arkansas for a weekend in June where they stayed at a resort off the shore of the White River. The youth arrived Friday night and enjoyed a fun-packed Saturday including hiking, games, and boating in the great Norfork Lake. The youth developed teamwork through splitting into groups for cooking, cleaning, salah, etc. Overall it was a great trip where the youth had a blast while building brotherhood and developing the theme of 'Himma' - Ambition!
