Ian had the opportunity to go with the youth group from our church and some other youth to Pine Ridge, SD to work with a mission group called “Youth Works” to help paint some homes and also to help run a Christian based kid’s club on the Pine Ridge Reservation. He had a wonderful time and learned a lot about others in need. I think it really helped him to see how blessed we are to be able to live the way we do. He was also able to go see Mt. Rushmore while out there. Here are some pictures from his trip.
