Making a Difference (07/20/17)

Out of all the days during this trip, my final day was by far the most rewarding and inspiring. Today, we helped make an extereme difference for about 130 kids on this island.

Day 5 (06/19/17)

Breakfast began at roughly 7:15 and consisted of a hearty serving of Frosted Flakes and scrambled eggs. Soon after, the main man Glen picked us up in his whip and dashed us over to the...
