This year, I have the pleasure of being a student intern for Global Serve Initiatives & The International Sports Federation, aiding in the planning and coordination of a 10-day missions trip to the World Cup in St. Petersburg, Russia from June 13th-24th, 2018.
The World Cup serves as the intersection for countless global cultures, with people from each and every walk of life coming together for a collective love of fútbol (Soccer). At a time when conflict and strife seem to be present at every corner of the globe, this mission, and this event will serve as an incredible opportunity to bring people of all faiths together and to share God’s love with all those present.
I’m incredibly excited to work with the GSI team to make this trip a success for all of our teams participating. In the coming months, there’s a lot of work to do, but I know this will be not only a life-changing opportunity but my first real introduction into the world of part/full-time missions work.
If you’re able to, please help support my participation in this incredible opportunity. You can support at either of the two links below:

Any additional funds will be used to help further GSI’s programs, and support future missions efforts.
