Half of Atlanta’s Sophia Academy’s high school students and two staff members went last November on a weeklong mission trip to Chinandega, Nicaragua, with Amigos for Christ. Before their departure, Father Joseph Peek showed the high school students a relic of the first degree of Jesus’ cross—the students kissed the relic in preparation for their mission trip. While in Chinandega, the students dug trenches for water pipes and worked in an orphanage, along with other service work.
Chaperone and teacher Joey Robinson said, “The mission trip was a life-changing and profoundly meaningful experience for us all. We met many beautiful and wonderful people. It was an experience I’ll never forget.”
