Recently one of our seniors, Allie Smith, took a trip to India. She traveled around stopping in New Delhi, Lucknow and Dehradun. This trip was run through Parkside Church and Medical Service. While she was there she attended medical camps every day helping the people of Delhi Bible Institute. After they helped the members of the church and their families they opened the doors to anyone in India who needed medical attention.
This trip to India has given Allie a different perspective on life giving her a culture shock. Seeing the different types of people and how happy they were in their conditions of life made her feel that there was no reason she couldn’t be happy. “This trip was life changing and I came thinking I was going to give to them but in reality they ended up giving to me,” said Allie when she arrived back in Cleveland. After Allie’s return from India she shared her trip with teachers, friends and family, wishing that everyone could experience this inspirational adventure she attended.
