In this episode Jeff Boyd interviews Adam Wamack about ADRA Connections, a short-term volunteer program hosted by ADRA International. This is the third and final installment in a series considering the question: "What did you do this summer?" Adam’s answer is that he led a large group of university students to Brazil, where they spent two week’s constructing a school campus. To learn more about this trip and how you can participate in future trips, please check out this conversation.
Our apologies for the beeping sound. There was construction going on at ADRA, and we couldn’t escape the noises. We hope you’ll be patient with the distractions.
