This varied and exciting trip was the culmination of three years of planning and fund rais- ing. The first part of the trip con- sisted of three days of visiting some of the more educational and historic sites in DC. With the help of a carry along curricu- lum custom designed for this trip by Avalon Schools history teach- er, Wayne Herbst, students took a unique look at the Jefferson, Roosevelt, and Lincoln memori- als, Arlington Cemetery, the Supreme Court, the Capital Building and the White House. Each sfudent came back with a deeper understanding of the workings of our government and the values and beliefs that found- ed our nation. Several local Christian teens recently returned from a trip to Washington, D.C. Shown above are, from left to right, back row: Dana Canby, Sara Veinbergs, Holly Olsen, Mary Beth Eroen, Jonathan Burcombe, Wendy Gutschow, Kim Olson, Josh Kleinman and Robin Swett. Middle row: Ben Eroen, Gabrielle Pia, Caitlin MacDonald, Jennifer Lavelle, Mitch Carroll, Matt Hibbs, Miles Seward and Scott Schmeckpeper.

Through an organization called Center for Student Missions (CSM) arrangements were made for them to serve at various locations with a variety of orga- nizations. At Vision DC, students sorted items donated by corporations for distribution to a variety of social service and educational institutions. At Martha's Kitchen, the group prepared more than 3,000 sandwiches for distribution that evening from mobile soup kitchens. With Kids Konnection stu- dents went to the commons area of a DC tenement and held an outdoor Vacation Bible School for the children of the area hous- ing. This experience was con- ducted over two days and was probably the most enjoyable yet the most frightening experience of the trip. Students were excit- ed to be teaching and playing with some of the most disadvan- taged children in our nation. At the same time they recognized they were doing this in the high- est crime area in the United States. Clean-up duties in the projects, breakfast for the home- less and a few other experiences rounded out this part of the trip. The last part of the trip was devoted to a DCLA.conference that is held every three years. This conference, sponsored by Youth for Christ, is four days of excitement and learning for Bible Church meets at 346 Catalina the youth.
