March 2023: International Christian School of Philadelphia served with kids ministry, learned about social issues, such as alleviating poverty, and had a hot spring adventure. 

 January 2023: “Team Pennsylvania,” a selected group of soccer players from PA, helped with a soccer camp and served at a children’s home and had an adventure through the jungle.
