It all started when ... The church preschool where I teach started a community project to raise $5,500 to build a well with Living Water International. My boss asked at a staff meeting if anyone wanted to go and I said that I've always wanted to go on a mission trip. Next thing you know I was signed up.
It all started when ... My church supports Living Water International through Advent Conspiracy. I have been a huge clean water advocate since I was a young girl, and now as a health care professional in laboratory medicine I understand how important clean water is! To be apart of this team was a wonderful life experience to me.
It all started when ... I went to a concert where Living Water International was promoting their trips and then researched the areas and short term trips available at the time. I have gone a few mission trips, but not a service trip where I would be working for the community. I signed up for the last trip of the year, and then prayed and waited for the time to come.
It all started when ... Stan Scarborough the owner of Scarborough specialties came to me in January of 2014 and asked if I would be willing to go in a mission trip with him and other. I enjoyed getting to know ... I really enjoyed spending some one on one time with our assistant driller Nelson. We had similar backgrounds and we just really connected. Also our head driller Stanley was an awesome leader very professional and full of great info about the community.
It all started when ... I was invited to go on this mission by a fellow parisioner from church. I had never been outside of the USA in my 62 years. I had a general idea of what to expect, but what I got was an eye opening life changing event. The people of other cultures are so happy and content with what they have, unlike some cultures that are driven for more and more things.
