Las Cruces Campo Immersion
From ridiculously sugary campo coffee to authentic Dominican meals (rice and beans siempre), we embraced the many simple things Las Cruces had to offer. However, in time, our experience grew to encompass many profound moments and memories that will stay with us forever.
Our experiences emphasized the importance of relationships and taught us that even when words fail us, love founds a common understanding that surpasses language. It for this reason that putting our experiences from Las Cruces into words proves difficult. We each learned from, found comfort in, and struggled with multiple different aspects of the immersion. Needless to say, it was an experience that impacted the members of our community on an individual level and in unique ways. Overall, it is not only an experience that goes beyond simple explanation, but also an experience that we can all carry with us for the rest of our lives.
