carson-newman-logo2JEFFERSON CITY — Carson-Newman University students and members of the campus community waived traditional Spring Break activities to take part in the university’s annual spring SPOTS missions trips.

Beginning March 1, teams left campus to serve in locations including Chattanooga, St. Louis, Mo., and Washington D.C.

Carson-Newman also sent its first 11-member team to Nepal. Chad Morris, associate director of campus ministries and coordinator of the trips, said the trip will be memorable.

The team will fly to Katmandu and then travel to Lukla where they will meet guides and go to three different villages to deliver dental, school, and medical supplies. They will also pray over hospital patients and be involved in service projects at a local school. Morris is excited about  the Nepal team. “In my 10 years here, this is the most diverse team that’s been put together. It has a faculty member, a staff member, undergraduate students, grad-
uate students, alumni, a dad of a student, and university board of trustee member Todd Greene, who helped initiate the Nepal trip.”

Morris said some team members also have backgrounds that include medicine, education, and international travel experience. “It’s just really neat to see how God has placed this team together,” Morris said.
