LoveWorks is committed to walking with students after they return home.  In many ways, the end of the trip is just the beginning.  A lifetime of lessons and direction can come out of a short time abroad.  Students are always welcome to meet with International Ministries staff to discuss participation in our programs or their interest in Christian missions and international work.
