April 23, 2018 – Many girls get excited about throwing big parties for their Sweet 16 celebrations. But for Vilexyana Rios, she is looking to do a little something different. She wants to help children in Nepal to learn about the word of Jesus.

Rios will be heading out to Nepal on a mission trip in the fall, approximately in November. Her trip will entail her working with a children’s ministry and help people in Nepal learn about the Gospel. She is excited to be spending her Sweet 16 not with a party but instead with the opportunity to help change the lives of people in one of the poorest countries in the world.
Rios will be traveling to Nepal on November 8 and will be back on November 18. Her mother will be attending as Rios is unable to go without an adult accompanying her.
