While most Sterling College students went home after finals to spend their Christmas as usual, 12 SC students along with nine faculty and staff are getting ready to fly to St. Lucia, an island in the Caribbean for a Sterling College mission trip. While there, the team will get a chance to help build houses, play with children and teach seminars on worship, leadership and biblical teaching.
"Planning a trip with so many components in such a short amount of time (about six weeks) should have been very difficult, but it has come together flawlessly," said Co-leader and Sterling College Resident Director Melissa Yarrow. "We hope to be able to encourage the congregation members of the Evangelical Church of St. Lucia and are expecting to learn and be encouraged by them in the process. The team has clicked so well together that it feels as if we have been working together for years, not weeks. I look forward to seeing how the Lord uses us once we are together in the country. Our contacts in the country have a long-standing relationship with our Director of Missions, Dr. Hank Lederle, and we are excited about the potential of working with them in the future."
This trip is lead by Josh Wisner and Melissa Yarrow, resident directors at Sterling College.
