MLC preseminary juniors hopped on a bus Sunday, February 4, and traveled six hours to Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary to discover what will be in store for them in a few short years.
On Monday they visited classes, hung out with sem students, and soaked up the feeling of unity that saturated the campus. “The message of the hymn ‘We All Are One in Mission,’” says Andrew Stoner (Resurrection-Chesapeake VA), “is shown clearly in all the work that happens here.”
On Tuesday they joined WLS students at the Mission and Ministry conference, where they got a close-up look at foreign missions. A visit to Grace Lutheran Church in Milwaukee and to the WELS Center for Mission and Ministry in Waukesha rounded out the trip.
On Wednesday they were back at MLC and the Greek and Hebrew homework that awaited—but with a renewed focus on their future and stronger relationships with their brothers. “It was great getting closer to our brothers from MLC and from the seminary,” says Erik Lund (Parkland-Tacoma WA). “Joining together around God’s Word was a blessing.”
