2016 Mission Trip, Yunnan Province, China
18 adventurous students set out for a very memorable Spring Break. Working in conjunction with Eliv, the students spent 10 days in the cold, upper elevations of China’s Yunnan Province building cowsheds to help establish a sustainable resource for children’s education and opportunities for ethnic groups. In the process, they bonded with the villagers and each other. They slept on the floor of a big room in the freezing temperatures, they ate local food prepared by the villagers, and they prepared their own food. They learned a dance, they learned about need, they learned about teamwork.
