Team to Central Java

Gary joined a team of 8 students & 2 teachers from College for a special trip to Juwangi, Boyolali, Central Java. We spent one week living in the village where we distributed 50 packages of basic necessities as most of these people are very poor. These packages consist of rice, cooking oil and other essential food items important for basic survival and living. It is quite common for students to come to poorer villages in a “practical work in the field” program. We are very thankful for this opportunity to visit this area and spend more time with individuals.
