Anali with others in her Colorado Springs Service Adventure unit
Anali spent 2015-16 serving in Colorado Springs as part of the Service Adventure unit there. This Sunday she shared about her experiences and reflected on the impact it’s had on her life so far. Scripture for the meditation was from Psalm 121, which was the passage the Colorado Springs unit chose for the year.
