Twenty Things I Learned in Memphis

[Editor’s Note: Last week, several high school students from Floris UMC were in Memphis, TN with an organization called Service Over Self (SOS). While in Memphis, they participated in inner city mission work such as working on homes, serving at soup kitchens and helping out at food banks. This week we are sharing some of the stories from students who participated in this trip.]
