Portsmouth, Virginia (June 6, 2022) - The youth ministry of Prince of Peace Church, known as #POPCVA, recently embarked on an educational and eye-opening trip to the heart of the nation, Washington, D.C. This unforgettable experience, made possible by the church's commitment to empowering young minds, allowed the youth to immerse themselves in the cultural tapestry of America and delve into the intriguing world of espionage.
On a sunny Saturday, the #POPCVA youth ministry eagerly set off for Washington, D.C., filled with anticipation for the day ahead. The first stop on their itinerary was the renowned Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture, where the young participants had the privilege of exploring African Americans' rich contributions and heritage throughout the country's history. Through captivating exhibits, thought-provoking displays, and interactive experiences, the youth gained a profound appreciation for the resilience, artistry, and achievements of African Americans in shaping the nation.
The journey continued to the International Spy Museum, which unveiled the secretive world of spies and espionage.

This immersive experience sparked their curiosity and encouraged critical thinking, inspiring the youth to explore the fascinating realm of intelligence and its impact on society.
What made this trip even more special was the fact that it was entirely free for the #POPCVA youth, thanks to the unwavering support and generosity of the Prince of Peace Church. The funds for this educational adventure were raised through the Little Miss Prince of Peace Pageant held in November. The church's commitment to nurturing the youth and investing in their growth was evident as they sponsored this remarkable journey, providing a platform for young minds to expand their knowledge and cultural awareness.
The success of this trip was the result of the collective effort of numerous individuals.
