It's hard to believe that after a year of planning; the time for the trip is finally here.  We could not be more thrilled with our team.  We are a wonderfully diverse group of people ranging from ages 8-39.  

These kids have worked hard to make this trip happen.  A huge thanks to all of you who helped make this possible.  A special thanks to all the parents who hauled their children to the many meetings and activities. Thank you for giving of your time and effort to make this happen. 
The team working on thank you notes for the many people who helped make this trip possible.

Thank you Brett for all your help.  You have been the best.  We will get you to Indonesia yet.

Praying for safe travels and a wonderful trip.

What a great looking group!

How do you prepare for a trip abroad?

Go Jared!  Move those M&M's!

Chopsticks are important to know how to use as we make the South East Asian swing.

This is where you learn a lot about your teammates!
