 Nearly 50 Campbellsville University students, faculty and staff sacrificed spring break for ministry opportunities in Haiti, Florida, New York and Guatemala.

The Guatemala mission team worked with Prince of Peace Orphanage for Girls. Lucas Pepper, a sophomore from Hodgenville, accompanied the group.

Ed Pavy, director of campus ministries who went on the trip, said, “Prince of Peace is a place where the girls have been given hope for their future-how appropriate it is named for our Savior.”

The team also installed a stove in a widow's home. Graduate student and campus ministries intern Charity Powell said, “Marta had been cooking in her home without any ventilation so she was breathing in smoke every time she cooked.”

The team installed a new stove with a vent pipe and used a lava rock which allows her to use less wood and allow the stove to stay hot longer.
