Taking a break to serve

by Teresa Houchin
Spring break translated into a mission experience for 22 high school students and leaders from Calvary Academy of Springfield, Illinois during the week of March 9-16, 2013. 

The week began with a trip to Hattiesburg, MS, to assist a local church that was heavily damaged from the recent February 10 Hattiesburg tornado.  During the rest of the week, the Calvary team ministered to the homeless by providing meals and by hosting a three-day Backyard Bible School at an apartment complex. Not only did this team impact the Coast; they were also greatly impacted.

“It was one of the greatest weeks ever. It changed my life and gave me a heart for service.”  Kayla

“I loved the challenges that the RM staff shared. They really spurred me on to serve more.”  Katelyn

“This week totally changed my life. I got to share the love of Jesus with all kinds of people.”  Abby
