The following post was written by Kelly Stratton – A Faith Promise College Student heading to do missions in Sweden this Summer!
Hej! For those of you who don’t know, that is how you say hello in Swedish. It’s one of the only words we know how to say, and we’re about to spend 6 weeks there. Courtney and I have been given an incredible opportunity to volunteer with Cru and be apart of summer project. Cru is a campus ministry that focuses on evangelism and ministering to college students.
The team Courtney and I will be apart of will be in Uppsala, Sweden. We will spend most of our time there at the university meeting as many students as possible and having lunch with them. The main point of these lunches is to get to know them and try to talk about Christian thoughts and ideas. Sweden as a whole only has 2% of the population as practicing Christians. Our goal is to try and get students interested in being in a small group where we can share the Gospel with them. We are so excited to be apart of sharing God’s love to the world in a way that is so similar to our home environment at Faith Promise. We would love to share our journey with you all! If you wouldn’t mind praying for us and this trip, it would be really appreciated. We are currently in the process of raising the financial support needed to go. If you’d like to help, you can donate online or by writing a check to Campus Crusade For Christ.
