We made it! Our road trip from Lafayette to Los Angeles was a fun one filled with lots of games, friendship bracelets, singing, & laughter. We stopped halfway at Kettleman City for lunch and to stretch our legs. In-N-Out Burger was a huge hit!
When we arrived at our host church and new home for the week, we set up our bunk beds and had a quick orientation to set our expectations for the week. We met our CSM city hosts for the week – Amanda, Nae, & Fran. These hosts will each join one of our groups for the week to serve as liaisons with CSM’s mission partner organizations where we will serve all week long and planning logistics. Then, two of our groups ate at an authentic Chinese restaurant and the third group ate Nicaraguan food. Yum!
After dinner, we did an activity to help open our eyes to some of the beauty of cross-cultural interactions which we will experience this week. We are ready to serve & learn tomorrow!
