"It was so amazing to get to know the people in Jordan. They were so welcoming and generous, it was just really eye opening to see how an entire country could be compassionate and have a heart of peace towards others. Meeting them was so inspiring and encouraged me to work harder at those things! It also restored my faith in humanity, which I’d kind of been losing before going on the tour."
Aurora Wilde, teen participant.
"Well, now I’m in love with the Middle East. I love the people. I can see what the news portrays and know that they are exploiting the entire Arab world as one small percentage. But I didn’t realize how truly wonderful and welcoming the people were, not only to us as foreigners but as a community. I am sharing that with everyone I get the chance to talk to about Jordan."
Amanda Amakasu, tour participant, mother.
I loved how the trip wasn’t just about seeing the sights but also really getting to know the culture and community as well! Meeting all the people and getting to know them and their stories made the trip so much more meaningful and impactful. I also loved how we would reflect back on our experiences and have mini devotionals. And I also liked how while we did have a schedule, it was flexible and we were able to explore on our own a little as well.
Lucy Hansen, teen participant.
