Spending Summertime for Service

Posted: 7/18/17 at 1:00pm. 

A number of students and young adults are spending the summertime to share Christ’s love around the globe. We ask you to say a special prayer for these summer venturers. Whether they are serving internationally in Romania, Vienna, or Ghana, or stateside through Impact camps and Disaster Response locations, they need our support and encouragement from home. These summer missionaries are sending their stories from the field. Click the links next to each name below to find out what they are experiencing in their locations.
