The last site of the year for our East Coast Team was hosted by West Shore Evangelical Free Church in Mechanicsburg, PA. It was an incredible week to get to know the community of Mechanicsburg and the great team at West Shore.  Prior to the Experience coming to town the church had hosted a concert by Todd Agnew as well as a luncheon with World Vision president Rich Stearns.  He spoke about his transition from corporate America to the non-profit sector that he discusses in his book The Hole in Our Gospel. Because of these events there was already a lot of hype and excitement before the Experience came to town.

We had the opportunity to meet a lot of great people this week including 2 kids who decided to allocate all their allowance money towards sponsoring a child. After going through the Experience they were incredibly touched and knew they had to help make a difference in one childs life. Mom and Dad agreed they could sponsor if they were willing to use their allowance for it. They willingly accepted!
