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 don’t know about, a part that is impoverished, and runs rampant with drugs. It’s a place where depression is common place and family structure is suspect at best.
A fifth Parshall teen who joined them on the trip, Jake Folven, has since moved to Bottineau and was unavailable for comment.
