The youth traveled to Washington DC for a mini-mission trip through a program called YSOP. After some sightseeing, we cooked and served a meal, open to people coming from the streets. It was a powerful opportunity to serve other people, especially people in need. Each table not only had food, but also board games. As we played games and broke bread together, we got to know each other and realize we are all people!
The next morning we split into two teams to do service projects. The one group headed to a furniture bank; the other to a senior citizen center. Both groups were able to serve others — blessed to be a be blessing!
