Mission trips lead young women to value life differently

Virginia Smith, of Ortega Forest, and Avondale resident Sally Van Cleve, both 2013 graduates of the Episcopal School of Jacksonville (ESJ), gave up their summer – willingly.
Smith spent six weeks working in Alajuelita, Costa Rica as a staff intern, where she led U.S.-based church groups ranging from 10 to 50 high school students, college-aged students, or adults each week.
Van Cleve went on the ESJ service trip to the Dominican Republic, to Hogar De Ninos, a boys’ orphanage in San Cristobal (a province outside of Santo Domingo). She was there for three weeks and served as a chaperone and head translator for the ESJ mission teams.
