“I went on the 3-month IMMERSION trip to South Africa and enjoyed every moment of it! God showed me how to live for the unplanned, and unknown moments that He perfectly placed in my path. If you are wanting to go on a trip that will challenge you to grow in faith and as a person, this trip will do that for you!”
