Youth Mission Trip to Peru: June 12, 2019

Published June 12, 2019 by Cameron Elliott

When getting ready for the trip to Peru, I was nervous. I knew very little about what I was getting myself into. I was mainly worried about being able to interact with the kids. Then the first day came around and every worry went away. Interacting with the kids was a lot of fun; they all had great attitudes and never let the disadvantages bring them down.

This trip is teaching me many things but the most important thing I am learning is to appreciate what I have. These kids have little to nothing and still show up every day with a smile on their face and are ready to conquer the day. Out of the trips I have been on with the church, the memories made and lessons learned on this trip will stay with me.
