Students Study Abroad

“It’s been quite a week for this Minnesota girl.”

So begins the January 15, 2018, blog of MLC student Abby Enstad (Cross of Christ-Coon Rapids MN), who is studying in Galway, Ireland, this semester.

“As I dream about what this semester has in store for me,” she continues, “I find reassurance in God’s Word. ‘If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast’ (Psalm 139:9-10). Although I may be 3,697 miles away from my home and my friends, God is never far away. . . . Keep checking this blog [] if you want to see where Ireland takes me each week.”

MLC students can study abroad anywhere in the world they wish, choosing courses that fit into their MLC ministerial training program. MLC’s International Services Office partners with several internationally known study-abroad providers to facilitate the trips.

After a summer or semester abroad, students return with a broader worldview, a new appreciation for other cultures, and a renewed zeal to share the gospel with all the world.
