“Youth in Missions” is a volunteer, short-term mission experience for which participants must raise all the funds to pay for their own expenses. Your prayers for the students as well as funding which some of the students are still lacking, are greatly appreciated.

“They're headed out in faith that God will somehow provide…” said Dr. Culbertson.
