Twelve students and staff members from Sterling College drove to Wilmington, Del., to participate in Christian missions during their spring break. Wilmington is the home of Urban Promise, a non-profit organization whose goal is to equip children and young adults with skills necessary for academic achievement, life management and personal growth.
The final group of students, faculty and staff from Sterling College returned to the United States on June 11, coming back from nine locations from around the world. The teams learned about the other cultures and participated in service projects including working with local churches, teaching in schools, giving out school supplies, preparing meals for distribution and many other tasks.
The Sterling College mission trip to Ghana this summer will stretch the eight members of the team as they preach, witness and build relationships throughout the country. The team will have opportunities to speak in local churches, schools and even on the street, but team members will also serve in any other way they can.
