Field Trip To The Holy Land Experience
On December 8, 2018 we took our young men on the first field trip of many. We decided to visit The Holy Land Experience located right here in Orlando, Florida. Many of our youth have never been to the many attractions right here in the city and Holy Land turned out to be the perfect fit. This theme park isn't like the others because it offers such a different experience while you're there. Our topics from the last month was personal growth, and anger-management so we wanted the young men to get real-life examples of what it meant to grow properly and deal with your anger. There was a particular show in which our boys wanted to see. It was called "The Heart of Christmas" and it has two parts to it. The young men was able to see stories acted out (amazing production) and saw how to respond in various situations in life. This also helped our boys to find out more in depth about Christ and the reason behind Christmas. They enjoyed themselves greatly to say the least. We would like to say THANK YOU to The Holy Land Experience for being such GREAT host for the day! The staff were amazing and ensured that everyone was taken care of.
