Each "It's Their Mission" trip includes a half day of recreation; the remainder of the week is hot, hard, complex, and demanding work. Groups have worshiped on a San Diego beach, atop 10,600 ft Sandia Peak overlooking Albuquerque and the Rio Grande River, and beneath cliff dwellings. Groups have celebrated Communion in special locations and in special ways, rafted the Animas River, danced to the sounds of the San Diego Banjo Band, camped at the bottom of Canyon de Chelly, and learned to make Vietnamese Spring Rolls and Navajo Fry Bread.
