A group of teenagers from Parshall took a trip of a lifetime last summer and are hoping they can raise enough funding to make a return trip and continue their missionary work in the United Kingdom.
Twins Cody and Ashley Folden, 15, Regan Christenson, 15 and her brother Lincoln Christenson, 13, say they are willing to go back to a part of England that most people donít know about, a part that is impoverished, and runs rampant with drugs.
