The students are looking forward to learning new things, checking out new destinations, and spending time with friends as we study on the road. We will leave the evening of October 12.

      We would like every student to be able to go and have some who are struggling to be able to pay for their trip. If you would like to help, you may make a tax deductible contribution by designating the funds go to Mission trip account and specify for "Heritage Tour."
