KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- A group of teens from Nebraska wanted to help others this summer. The teens chose Kansas City as the place to make their mark.

About 80 teens from all over Nebraska joined up and bussed down for a mission trip this week. The teens passed out cold drinks, snacks, and sandwiches to people at 39th and Troost Friday, at one the city's busiest bus stops.

One girl said the trip has been a great opportunity to see things differently than from what she knows back home.

Karleen Kolar said, "Seeing the problems urban communities have and trying to make a difference, no matter how small it is."

St. Mark's Hope and Peace Lutheran here in Kansas City helped host the traveling teens.
