More Mission & Travel Highlights: Our host church in Denver, CO was Christ the King Lutheran Church where we had breakfast and helped to clean an area and lay the bricks for a patio. As we traveled through Arches and Bryce Canyon National Parks, we took in the beauty of God’s miracles in nature.
Day 3 Highlights: We worked at the Mission Thrift Store cleaning outside and helping straighten up the inside.
