April Jimenez is a senior Exercise Sports Science major at Lubbock Christian University. During her spring break, Jimenez led a team of 19 students to Houston to work with inner-city kids at Impact Church of Christ. During this week, Jimenez and her team conducted a Vacation Bible School (VBS), however, she said their real job was to simply love the children.
"Many of the children aren't receiving love from home," said Jimenez. "It's so rewarding to love on them and see the children smile because they know there is someone there who actually cares about them."
According to Jimenez, knowing she could make a child feel loved was the most rewarding part of the trip. Jimenez loves that LCU offers spring break campaigns so that she can go to places like Houston with fellow college students and serve God and serve others.
