Those of You Born
1930 - 1979

1930's, 40's, 50's, 60's and 70's!!

First, we survived being born to mothers
Who smoked and/or drank while they were Pregnant.

They took aspirin, ate blue cheese dressing,
Tuna from a can and didn't get tested for diabetes.
Then after that trauma, we were put to sleep on our tummies in baby cribs covered with bright colored lead-base paints.
We had no childproof lids on medicine bottles,
Locks on doors or cabinets and when we rode
Our bikes, we had baseball caps not helmets on our heads.

Cam showed interest in this trip after he was given the opportunity to lead a friend from an atheist family to Christ. He also is currently taking Spanish and is very excited to experience a new culture and to help those in need.

The cost of the trip is $650 per person, for a total of $1300. We are fundraising for this trip as it is impossible for us to go on our dime alone. It is a missions trip through our church and they are paying for a portion of the trip. The $650 is what is left over as our …
