This year's missions team departed Friday for the Navajo Reservation in Arizona to work at Sun Valley Indian School. The students and adults will perform a variety of tasks, including painting, landscaping, arts and crafts, singing, serving food and leading devotions. The team will return May 1. The annual trip is an activity that goes to the heart of the school's mission statement: "Cook Inlet Academy joins with parents in leading children to know the fullness of God's love and to experience the life change that only God can produce."
