Message from STC President, Jed Young

Dear Members and friends of STC:

If you have not taking a vacation this summer, you may want to think about it. I’m writing you from Guayaquil, Ecuador – South America. My vacation is a seven day, short term mission trip, helping others in a village called Curia. There just happens to be some of the best surfing in the world here.
