The Reviews Are In: 4 Teams, 4 Locations, 4 Life-Changing Adventures
Wonder Voyage takes the work out of pilgrimages and mission trips so the leaders can focus on the team, and the team can focus on the journey before them. Here are four reviews that show what that looks like in action.
Teens “anchored in their faith” in Oregon
The Covid Pandemic darkened the threshold of almost every element of our lives. Teens had to navigate a new world of isolation, fear, and loneliness. A pilgrimage is a sacred journey undertaken for a spiritual purpose. This spiritual purpose was to reestablish the roots of our youth who are ending their high school years and anchor them in their faith. Oregon was an amazing experience, but my most cherished moments are those intimate ones where we listened to one another and made memories. Hemmingway is quoted as saying, “It is good to have an end to journey towards, but it is the journey that matters, in the end!” – Joe, St. John’s Lancaster
“Wonder Voyage makes the pilgrimage experience simpler” in France
Going on pilgrimage is not a simple undertaking. It requires courage to leave the comfort of your home and venture out into the unknown and prayer to prepare for whatever God has in store for your heart. As logistically difficult and spiritually challenging as pilgrimage is, Wonder Voyage makes the pilgrimage experience simpler for the leaders and more transformational for all who dare venture out to find wonder in new places. I cannot recommend going on pilgrimage with Wonder Voyage enough. – David, St Peter’s
“Everything I could have hoped for and more” on the El Camino
I can’t imagine leading another pilgrimage without the help of Wonder Voyage. The lodging and meal organization was extremely helpful for me to be able to focus on the spiritual learning of our group without getting bogged down in details. The guides quickly became vital members of our leadership team. And that’s not even taking the flexibility of the organization into account as we navigated the early COVID time. Wonder Voyage was everything I could have hoped for and more. – Greg K, Bethesda-by-the-Sea, FL
“Our Guide was the perfect fit for the teens” in the Grand Tetons
Our pilgrimage to the Tetons was incredible! Our guide, Jordan, was the perfect fit for the teens. By the second day, he had nicknames for all of them, and it was obvious that he had connected with them. They loved his gentle ribbing and good-natured humor. Jordan told stories every night that made the kids howl with laughter. His message of “you each have a story to tell” resonated with all of them. By the end of the week, the stories all connected, and the kids got the message that their unique stories were all part of God’s plan for them. – Sally S, St Marks, MD
