Our common purpose

An update from Hannah:

DSC03120.jpgDSC03109.JPG I was initially very excited about the trip to Little Rock, but I never imagined that a week spent in Arkansas would completely change my Christmas season. The entire group was absolutely incredible; they are some of the most dedicated and humble people I know at SMU.

We spent every minute together – from working with Habitat and serving the community to preparing meals and hiking at Pinnacle – and yet the group never seemed to become frustrated with one another. There was a definite sense of common purpose, and we truly enjoyed living and working with each other.

It was an incredible experience, and I am thankful to be blessed by such amazing people in my life.
