On this week's post from the Archives, read about an HSI trip to North Africa in 2016. On this trip, the team ministered to refugee and street children, using music as therapy. The children found joy and hope as they used music to process their experiences and learned that God cares deeply for them.
At the end of May, a portion of the Inspiro staff met in Budapest, Hungary for a team reunion. Having not been together in person for over a year, the time for fellowship was most welcome. Our purpose for the week was two-fold – to spend time catching up as a team and to scout out places for the Incarnate students to see during their time in Budapest. The later half of this goal involved visiting places like Memento Park, the Hungarian House of Music, and the artistic village of Szentendre.

If you found yourself on the canals in Chirk, Wales earlier this month, you might have seen an interesting site – seven artists aboard a canal boat, painting, chatting, and sailing. The seven women – from Wales, the Philippines, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Nigeria – hired a 21-meter (69 foot) boat and were on a mission to share the hope of the gospel through art.
Today's Archive Wednesday is a trip report from an HSI project in South Asia in July of 2018. During the trip, the team conducted a songwriting workshop with local pastors and musicians, teaching them to write worship songs in their language and traditional style. The team was ecstatic when the pastors created a benediction song - a new genre for them. Read more below about the trip!
