The Nehemiah trip is limited to alumni students who have been recommended by their previous Trip Leader. Nehemiah is for students who have demonstrated a teachable spirit, and leadership potential.
The Nehemiah trip will raise the bar and further challenge and develop your skills, personal spiritual maturity, and leadership skills. Part of the process is traveling to the birthplace of Jesus, walking in His shadow, and learning more about how He developed leaders.
This summer I had an amazing summer of growth. One of my favorite memories was working at a VBS that was held at a Sudanese refugee camp in Israel. I was very nervous to help lead a group of students, but a little girl named Sarahla became friends with me instantly. All she wanted was to be loved, cared for, and to have someone to play with. It was so awesome to be able to be those things for her, even if it was only for 3 days. Working at the refugee camp was a good reminder that, while we may not always see the “fruits of our labor”, we never know what kind of a difference we make in the people’s lives that were working with.
