This trip will focus on providing care for spiritual and physical needs. Students will minister in congregations in the sprawling metropolis of Montevideo and quaint rural towns of Uruguay’s rustic interior. They will also feed the hungry and repair a local church building.

Coming on this AYC trip was beyond anything I ever expected. I never realized how many true, lifelong friends I would make. Everyone who came was truly invested in the trip, and was willing to do whatever was asked of us. We did a lot of sightseeing, and fun touristy things, but the most impactful moments were the prayer meetings we had and the church services we attended. It truly wrecked my life, and I would gladly do it again.
