Top: Alisha Goldman, Tammy Fielder and Rachel 0'Rear pack up lor the San Antonio campaign. Bollom: San Anlonio campaigners sing for a group ol elderly people. 52 X Spring Break Campaign long Ike campaign flfdff Spring break for some students meant a time to catch up on assignments that had fallen by the wayside. For others, it meant a time to visit Mom and Dad, get some sleep, eat Mom's good meals and relax for a few minutes. Still others used spring break as a chance for a pleasure trip. But for one fairly large group of students, spring break was much more than any of those things. That group was made up of students who participated in the Spring Break Campaigns, working with congregations across the nation. Students this year were involved in campaigns to a dozen cities: Portland, Ore., St. Louis, Mo., Long Beach, Calif., Oshkosh, Wis.g San Antonio, Philadelphia, New York City, Miami, Fla., San Leandro, Calif., Lansdowne, Pa., Wood- bury, NJ.g and Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The goals of the campaigns were to introduce students to areas where Christians were needed and to allow them to ex- perience a new environment, its culture and the influence the church had in that area. The methods of each campaign group differed according to the needs of the area in which the group was visiting. Students returning from the campaigns always had stories to tell, stories that helped those who hadn't participated bet- ter understand what made the campaigns so special. In- cluded here are summaries and excerpts from reports by Robert Reagan, director of the New York City campaign, and Rachel O'Rear, a San Antonio campaigner. Although the names, places and specific details changed for each city visited by campaigners, many of the feelings, emotions and perspectives were similar for all campaigners. Robert, a junior from Leander, recalled one of the first people he met in New York. After arriving March 18, Robert and his group of nine campaigners went to eat. Robert stood in line by a "drunk man" he described this way: "His hair was in knots, his clothes were rags, and he had not shaved in several days." The man asked Robert, "Hey, where you from? Germany? England? You ain't from around here." When Robert answered that he was from Texas, the man replied: "Texas. I know Texas. Why would I lie to you. I hate Texas." The man then asked Robert to eat with him. Robert recalled that he "just let him fthe manj talk in circles for about five minutes. He cursed the world and every other thing that came to mind." Then Robert asked the man's name, and he said, "Henry" "I asked him his last name," Robert said, "and he said, just Henryf " The line that Robert said he would never forget from the conversation came later, however. When Robert asked how long the man had lived in New York, he answered, "Live here? I die here. You ain't born to live, you were born to die. I may die tonight."
