In the spring of 2015, I traveled to the Dominican Republic with my Global Issues class. When I was there I helped build a house for a family in need, played with kids at an orphanage, and spent time in the community and schools. Working with the kids was one of my favorite parts. They were so grateful of us and we developed an attachment that will never go away. We worked through the Praying Pelican Missions. I felt like God was calling me to help and serve other children of God.
I absolutely loved going on the service trip. It showed me that I don’t need everything in the world to be happy. As a group we learned that strings and cards can build great friendships with one another. If I had another chance to go on a mission trip, I would go in a heartbeat. I would recommended this to everyone because it is an eye-opening experience.
