McKayla and her brother, Kaden

It is a beautiful Sunday afternoon here in Indiana. The sun is shining, the birds are singing and there is a smile on my heart. Spring? Yes, but that’s not all.

Anatomy of a Mission

Quechua Benefit mission participants often leave for Peru excited about the good they are about to do for some of the poorest people on earth. Invariably, at some point in the mission, they begin to realize, almost feeling guilty, that they are the ones who may well be benefiting most from the experience.
