"I used to joke a lot with my friends about running away and living in a cardboard box.  Now I have met someone who really does, and I am not going to make that joke anymore."

--Pratt High School Student, after building a house for a poor family in Juarez, Mexico.

It is an incredible thing taking a teenager on a trip.  When the students get out of their comfort zone, walls can drop and relationships are deepened.

We have found that taking a student on a trip or to an event will soften their hearts and create opportunities to teach them about God in ways that nothing else can!  We have taken students to Colorado and Mexico on mission trips, to youth conferences like DC/LA and Acquire the Fire, and we have put on events like 30 Hour Famine and a Prayer Labyrinth.  We are constantly seeking new and creative ways to connect our youth to Jesus!
