“We had the opportunity to canvass door to door in Queens, lead Art in the Park with crafts and the Easter story, and help with preparations for our church’s Sunday service,” says Camryn Biebert (pictured).
“The church was very welcoming, so we had a lot of fun getting to know the members throughout the week. My favorite moment from this exciting trip was sharing the Easter message with the kids at the park and seeing their excitement when they heard that their Savior has risen.”
“We got to help out a WELS church that was just getting started,” says Corey Paske (pictured).
“For years a group of people wanted to have a church, and now they finally got a pastor called there. The trip showed the group how much work goes into getting a church off the ground in a new area.”
“Any experience is good experience for us, and College Station was by and large a great one,” says Alex Lindemann (pictured).
“We sang for services, including their huge Easter in the Park celebration, saw much of their cool town, and met some fun and hospitable people.”
“We hung flyers on doorknobs and talked to people about what their church life was like,” says Dana Pietrzyk (pictured).
“It was really awesome to talk to different people about what they believed. It strengthened my confidence in talking to people about Jesus, and it helped me realize that there are so many more people that need the gospel.”
