Scotland (Trip is full) - 2022

Scotland is full of breathtaking scenery and an enormous history. You will experience the majestic castles, rolling green hills and the countryside with lots of history! In addition to the mainland, Scotland is made up of more than 790 islands. Despite its small size, Scotland has many treasures – big skies, broad landscapes, hospitable people, and iconic hilltop castles. The majority of the cities that AYC will be visiting have a strong history of tradition and Catholicism. We will be providing participants with an exciting opportunity to help with works in the Edinburgh area, as well as in Glasgow. You will also be an encouragement to other works in Stirling and Falkirk.

When I left for my AYC trip to Costa Rica, there was no way I could have anticipated what God had in store for me. I left for Costa Rica, hoping to see God perform miracles in the lives of those around me. I never imagined that he also planned on touching my life, and healing the insecurities that I had struggled with for years. It took me flying all the way to Costa Rica to realize something; The God who healed bodies and filled souls with his spirit in Central America, was at work back at my home in Maryland. I left AYC not feeling afraid to go back home, but confident that when I went home, he would be the same God. Since AYC, my faith has been amplified and I know that God is the same, no matter where I am!
