Approximately 600 Abilene Christian University students will be spending their spring break holiday doing mission work in more than 31 cities, 17 states and five different countries on Spring Break Campaigns.

Each campaign group of approximately 20 students will perform various forms of community improvement and church work coupled with one day of sightseeing.

Destinations for Spring Break Campaigns include: Anchorage, Alaska; Birmingham, Ala.; Long Beach, Calif.; Los Angeles; San Francisco; Boulder, Colo.; Manchester, Conn.; Washington, D.C.; Atlanta; Macon, Ga.; Oahu, Hawaii; Chicago; St. Paul, Minn.; Bozeman, Mont.; Libby, Mont.; New York City; Manhattan, N.Y.; Portland, Ore.; Philadelphia; Knoxville, Tenn.; Nashville, Tenn.; San Antonio, Texas; Virginia Beach, Va.; Seattle; Belize; Toronto; Dominican Republic; Ensenada, Mexico; Haiti; and Trinidad

One Spring Break Campaign does not yet have a destination -- and will not have one until they arrive. The Seek and Follow Campaign will seek God's guidance each day as to where to go.

The campaign will begin in Dallas and start in a direction determined by a coin flip. Throughout the week, the Seek and Follow group will stop and help in various places where they feel they may be needed.

Last year's Seek and Follow Campaign stopped to help a stranded motorist in Cincinnati, helped clean out a mission in Springfield, Mo., and ministered to a troubled teen-age girl in Detroit. Other stops included St. Louis; Muskogee, Okla.; and Chicago.
