Santa Fe Itinerary

Here is the itinerary (below) for our trip, so you can get a sense of what we'll be up to! The group is composed of four Duke students, four ECU (Eastern Carolina) students, and two campus ministers.

From now on you can expect more posts from me about my general travels & work (travaux). I hope you enjoy!

So, Santa Fe! Thanks to the incredible support & generosity of my family and the Lilly Scholars program at Duke, I will be leaving on Friday the 5th for a mission trip with the Presbyterian Campus Ministries of Duke and ECU. We'll be hosted by First Presbyterian Church of Santa Fe, where we will study and engage in issues of food policy, environmentalism, and interfaith dialogue. We are planning to work with local homeless shelters and a community farm, …
