This past week our very first Hands and Feet group traveled to St. Louis for 5 full days of service and learning. I was lucky enough to be able to join this amazing group of students from UKirk at Michigan State University. Thanks to the leadership and hospitality of AMEN Saint Louis we had a wonderful week full of rewarding and challenging experiences. You can see a collection of pictures I posted on Facebook by, clicking here and a news article written by Jerry Van Marter by, clicking here.
Over the next few weeks we’ll be launching a new logo, website and promotional video. I’ll make an announcement as these tools become available.
