This year, we partnered again with the BCM on campus and Arkansas Baptist Builders (ABB) for a Spring Break trip to New Orleans. Our team consisted of 18 college students and two leaders. The majority of the students were from the University of Arkansas, but five construction management students from JBU also joined the group. In addition to partnering with ABB to dry-wall a house, we partnered with a local church (Edgewater Baptist Church) doing street ministry (prayerwalking, evangelism and trash-pickup), canvasing neighborhoods with over 1200 invitations to their Easter celebration and their homeless ministry. It was an amazing trip and we all look forward to next year. Below are some blogs from a few of the students on the trip.
