KW editor note: Nicole was a member of mission trip to Zambia. Through the Wisconsin Lutheran Chapel (Campus Ministry) at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, she and her teammates seek to bridge several gaps between the Christian students at a university in Lusaka, Zambia and themselves. The following is a beautiful anecdote which highlights one of the very small, but exceptionally important reasons to serve on a mission trip. Rare glimpses into God and His creation. One of...
The past couple days have been such
a great experience here in Phoenix, Arizona.
The children’s faith is growing each day and it is so amazing to
watch. The kids are experiencing hands
on activities as they are led through the desert by Moses. The tribes are chanting Bible passages with
excitement and are enjoying hearing the good news about their Savior. It is so neat to watch the children make new
friends and become more vocal as the week goes on. They are understanding the Bible con...
Vacation Bible School at Cross of Glory Lutheran Church in Peoria, AZ has been incredibly rewarding thus far. At a church of about 300 members (some of which leave during the summer and return during the non-summer months), hosting upwards of 150 area children for VBS has been no problem.

Their VBS numbers were more than double the enrollment of their Lutheran grade school - proving that there is so much room for growth.
Yesterday we ...

North Hollywood, CA
St. Paul’s Sizzlin’ Summer Program is Underway!
When I first found out that I was going to get the chance to work at St. Paul’s First Lutheran Church and School in North Hollywood, CA I was excited and nervous at the same time. I had never been on a mission trip like this before and was ready to use the gifts that God had given me to serve God’s children at St. Paul’s. The big city scared me though. I had never been a ...

After our flight landed safely, our very first impression of the Phoenix experience was though our lifestyles may be different from one another, we are all one in Christ. We were welcomed into the church Sunday morning just as it was our home church. After the service, we enjoyed visiting during fellowship time followed by a brief Bible study. The cong...
