More than 50 Eastern Christian High School students used their spring break vacation to participate in short term missions trips. Partnering with Touch the World, Eastern Christian sent teams to Uganda, Puerto Rico and Lynn, MA, as part of its Experiencing Missions program. There were also several students who went to Ghana through LinC youth group.
EC teamed with Iglesia Biblica de la Gracia, a church in Puerto Rico that has recently launched an after-school program providing a safe place for local kids after school. The students helped facilitate programming in the afternoons and spent the mornings building an addition to one of the camp buildings.
