It was my pastor, whom I barely knew, asking me if I would like to join him and the team on a mission trip to Tijuana, Mexico. He had seen me volunteer at the church for years, and thought I would make a great...

  • It was the summer of 2007 and I had so much adrenaline pumping through me that I hadn’t slept in weeks. I, along with thirteen friends from church, had spent the previous year fund raising to help with the cost of a trip that will never be forgotten. It was the Nazarene Youth Conference of 2007....
