Val Youmans, daughter of P.O. and Emmalene Youmans, completed a mission trip to Haiti in December. The trip consisted of eleven months and eleven countries: Romania, Ukraine, India, Nepal, Rwanda, Kenya, Uganda, Cambodia, Vietnam, Thailand, and the Philippines. Designed specifically for 21-35 year olds, the trip gave participants the opportunity to see a variety of cultures and a variety of needs to help them find out how to help so many people.
