Urban Plunge

This past weekend was Urban Plunge, a 24-hour mission trip to St. Louis. The students who attended had the privilege of riding down to St. Louis on Friday night and staying in the Hampton Inn by Forest Park. We made the decision to arrive on Friday night because we had to be at the organization extremely early Saturday morning. At the hotel that night, we watched the movie To Save a Life and had a discussion afterwards about the implications of the movie—taking responsibility for one’s actions within the scope of God’s converting grace. If you have not seen the movie, it is a fictional movie about one boy’s journey to Christ after his childhood best friend commits suicide.

Northern Ireland Spring Break Trip

Who said Spring Break couldn't be full of surprises? (Actually, I have never heard anyone utter an opinion one way or the other on that subject -- just needed an attention-getting opener.) (It worked -- you're still reading.) Like other stories I've heard from fellow sojourners about their trips (or nontrips) over Spring Break, my Spring Break experience didn't exactly go according to plan. In fact, our backpacking adventure to Big Bend National Park in Texas unfolded much differently then our fearless leader, Dustin Fenton, and the rest of our band of merry hikers had anticipated. However, the trip proved to be an incredible experience despite the surprises. Though freezing temperatures, strong winds, a severe drought, and repeated warnings of mountain lions and bears tried to subdue us, we stood our ground and conquered the wilderness like seasoned explorers.
