Pray for Student/Faculty Travelers
Next week begins our Upper School Exploration trips. TPCS has approximately 150 Upper School students spread out over six trips. The activities and places visited on these trips reinforce many of the core values we want our TPCS students to learn. TPCS student travelers will engage the world by inspiring purpose, developing leaders, and sharing Christ. Students involved in ministry trips are challenged to take a spirit of humility and love as they serve under local ministries to advance the Kingdom through travel. Other trips will expand their perspective and challenge them to greater leadership as they develop a greater understanding of the world through travel. The trips are part of our efforts to train scholars, make disciples, and graduate leaders.
Our seventh grade is going to the Ark Encounter and Creation Museum in Cincinnati. The eighth grade is going to Washington DC, visiting museums and national and historic sites.
Our ninth through twelfth-grade students chose between two out-of-country trips to either London or Costa Rica. The Costa Rica travelers will be building a house for a needy family. The London travelers will be focusing on an apologetics tour visiting Oxford and related sites. The remaining students chose between a Houston Space Center STEM-focused trip and a mission trip to the Appalachian mountain region of Kentucky.
Our students and faculty chaperones will leave this weekend or Monday for their adventures. I ask that you pray for our travelers for good health, safety, connectedness, and spiritual impact for our students and a positive impact on the people they serve.
