During ISU Spring Break each year Cornerstone embarks on short term mission trips. We have partnered with multiple organizations for these trips including: Habitat for Humanity (rebuilding after Katrina in the gulf coast states), El Refugio (teaching ESL classes in Italy), Amor Ministries (building for those in extreme poverty in Mexico), Service Over Self (rehabbing in the inner-city Binghampton neighborhood of Memphis TN).
This year we will partner once again with Service Over Self (SOS) to serve the residents of Binghampton. We will drive down to Memphis, stay at the SOS volunteer lodge, and perform urban home repairs during the day, while attending evening programs filled with worship and Christ-centered messages at night. Throw in a few fun activities around Memphis (maybe someone will spot Elvis!), late night runs to Sonic, discovering things you never knew about your fellow CStoners (like Mike Klunke has serious carpentry skills) and you have a week that you won't soon forget.
