Sarah Platz always planned to go on a mission trip.

But the Park Rapids resident didn't plan on facing the swine flu outbreak in Mexico, which cut her trip short.


She left in April and was scheduled to come back in June but due to the outbreak, everything was shut down and she returned in May.

Although she got to finish a couple of projects, she was still disappointed.

"I was hoping to continue to do projects," Platz said.
