Spring Break Mission Trip

June 01, 2005 | Pat Mehler

Ten students and four adults from the Skagit Adventist School in Burlington, Wash., spent their spring break in southern Mexico, near Guatemala. Their goal was to construct an elementary school at the Linda Vista University, Pueblo Nuevo, Chiapas, Mexico. This project took place March 16–28 and was part of a multiple group project organized by Maranatha. The other groups were from the Bethany Christian School of Montgomery, Ala., a church group from Canyon City, Colo., and Olympia (Wash.) Junior Academy.

Construction of an education and evangelism center on the campus was necessary due to the growth of the university. The space used by the former elementary school was badly needed by the university.

Terry Lee, Skagit Adventist School principal, said, “All who participated had a great time serving the Lord by building a quality facility for the churches in that area to use for the spreading of the gospel. All look forward to next year’s trip.”
