North by Northwest
Join Eric Palmer, a seasoned group leader to this location, at Cheyenne River Indian Reservation, Eagle Butte, South Dakota
Travel to the Cheyenne River Reservation in order to serve the Lakota Indian population through service and ministry (details coming). BCS students will experience first hand an extraordinary landscape and a brand new culture. The history of the western expansion of the United States comes alive on the trip to the Great Plains.
This trip is not for the weary traveler. You must bring a great attitude and spiritual maturity to this adventure in order to see the fruit of this effort. We will drive for 20 hours over 2 days, to and from, enter into a culture that has experienced and is experiencing great spiritual darkness and great spiritual need.
This trip is as close as you will get to an international mission trip without leaving the country.
