Pictures from my son's mission trip

My 15 year old son recently returned from a 10 day(it was supposed to be 9 days, but was extended due to a missed plane) mission trip to Billings, Montana with his school. While he was there, he did "Habitat for Humanity" kind of work for a local church there, lots of landscaping and working on a house, etc. This first picture is him high above Billings on a hike.
He helped break up and remove tree stumps at a house in a Billings housing project. See the green hoodie that the girl is wearing in this picture? My son did all the graphic design of the hoodies and t-shirts that the mission team wore, he was really proud of them.
More digging to remove the stump, progress is being made! A moment of triumph, the stump has been vanquished!
Last one, here is a picture of him preparing to lead a dogsled team. This picture is remarkable because the night before this picture was taken he had a 103 degree fever and was generally miserable but he was able to get some good meds and pull it together to get to experience dogsledding. This mission trip was a great experience for him, I'm sure that he'll remember it forever.


  1. What a wonderful experience for him indeed! You can see how proud he is of himself in these pictures.

  2. What a wonderful trip for a young man!!
