“[This trip has] opened my eyes to so many things — How powerful and incredible God is [and] how insanely passionate we should be/become for Christ...”
“[In the next six months I will] love on my community, live more simply and really seek God.”
“[This trip has] made me see that one person can help and/or impact another.”
“I realized just how inhibited I am in my praise and worship. I am too aware of my surroundings and people around me to fully give myself to God in worship.”
“[This trip has] shown me how easy it is to get involved. There is lots to be done. Pick a project and go.”
“[In the next six months] I am going to let the experiences on this trip change me. It’s easy to shove it out of our minds but then there is no point in coming.”
