A view from Haiti

Tiffany front webBeacon contributor Cheyanne Lent spent her Spring Break, along with a group of students, on a missions trip to Haiti. Every year, PBA sends students around the world to different countries during the Spring and Summer breaks. Spring Break ’09 trips included missions to locations such as Ireland, Brazil, Peru and Haiti.

Check out Lent’s slideshow of the trip and her behind the scenes photos of the team’s experience here!

From two girls walking to their car in the Lakeview parking lot

Girl one: “Gasp!”

Girl two: “What’s wrong?”

Girl one: “Oh my gosh! For a second I thought my tail lights were cracked but then I realized, oh no… it’s just bird poop.”

From three girls sitting at the cross walk in front of the library.

Girl one: “Fat girl moment of the day: Today I was going to get up and go for a run but then I just sat on my couch and ate Chex Mix”

Girl two: “Oh my gosh! I did the exact same thing wit pita chips!”

Girl three: “I’m starving. Wanna go to Chipotle?”

Girl one and two in unison: “OK!”
