Several Woodmont Hills young adults are on international mission trips this month, and we want to cover them in prayer during their journeys and their work in foreign countries. A few of those are students are:
Alex Shumate – in the country of Moldova from May 9-24. Working with a Christian organization there, her team will help raise awareness of the dangers of human trafficking of young women by conducting prevention programs within the public school system. They will also work in a rehabilitation program, showing victims the love of Christ while they teach the girls a specific craft. The leaders of the trip are Lipscomb University’s Campus Minister, April Moseley, and her husband, Josh.
Phillip Brasher – in Guatemala May 8-18. With a group from the Engineering Department at Lipscomb, Phillip will be serving the native Qeq’chi people in several communities in the Ulpan Valley. The department has made several previous trips to this area working on projects such as water filtration, pit latrines, solar-powered charging stations, and building bridges.
Nathan Owens – in Nairobi, Kenya from May 15-29. With another Lipscomb Missions group, Nathan will be working with the organization Made In The Streets. That local non-profit helps remove abandoned children from the streets and get them off their addictions to substances such as glue. Nathan carries on the tradition of dedication to missions set by his grandfather, former long-time Woodmont Hills elder and Mission Committee chair Willis Owen.
Many students at Woodmont Hills are involved in mission work through Lipscomb and other Christian organizations, with several having participated in Spring Break 2012 trips. The Missions Committee is eager to hear about any of these upcoming trips as well as any recently-completed trips. We encourage you to write to our Mission Education coordinator Pat Dwyer at firstname.lastname@example.org or the Mission Committee at email@example.com.
