AWOL in Salt Lake City!

We began our day climbing Ensign at 5140 ft. Next, we traveled to the great Salt Lake; it smelled funky. Following a quick lunch at Christ United Methodist Church, where we are staying, we began our service learning.

Our first mission of the day was filling backpack and emergency relief kits for an organization called UMCOR. Our attention was soon brought to the unsettling realities Salt Lake’s homeless population faces. At St. Vincent’s dinning we served 459 meals to homeless men, women and children. This was an eye opening experience that took us out of our comfort zone. #GOAWOL
