What Students Are Saying
“Since being in Thailand, I’ve learned and grown a lot! I I’m learning how to live and work with a team, and how to love even when the other people are driving me crazy. I’m learning that sometimes ministry can be hard, messy, or boring, but that it’s all worth it to see someone make a step closer to the Lord. And I’m learning that the gospel can be expressed in different ways in different cultures, and that it’s beautiful.”
