LeTourneau University students are gearing up to travel
to Mexico and several cities in the United States to serve others during spring break. Senior
aeronautical science major David Fort, who is vice president of missions for LeTourneau Student
Ministries, is coordinating the mission trips. LeTourneau Student Ministries is a student-led
organization of Christian ministry that sponsors spring break missions, as well as other community
events throughout the year.
“These trips put students out of their comfort
zones and into a place where they have to rely on God,” Fort said. “Maybe it's through God
providing the funding for them to go, or maybe it is through truly witnessing for the first time.”
