When I took 20 4th and 5th graders to Ensenada, Mexico in 2007, I required every child to complete an application. First of all, it did serve as the basis of all information about the child and his/her family, but the essay questions at the end gave me an idea of their spiritual life. It was important that on a Mission Trip to Mexico, I was only going to take kids who were a little more serious about their faith and actively perusing a relationship with God.
