Students serve in the U.S. and abroad this Spring break

Spring break mission trips are just around the bend and students are gearing up for time away from Gordon’s campus. From March 12-20, over 80 Gordon students, on seven teams, will serve in the U.S. and abroad.

Through U.S. Exposure, teams will be located in Detroit, rural Mississippi, Portland, Maine, and Yakama Native American Reservation in Washington State. In addition, three teams will travel to Haiti, the Dominican Republic, and Nicaragua.

“Students will serve through construction projects, after school programs for children, facilitating vacation Bible school, and many other ways that meet the needs in their particular location,” says Laura Carmer, director of missions. “The willingness and enthusiasm of our students is always encouraging to the long term missionaries and organizations they serve with, and our students get to experience how God is working in the broader world."

All teams raised support through fundraising letters and some through selling fall semester finals survival kits.
