After much prayer and consideration, I have decided to participate in a mission trip to Uganda and Rwanda this summer. King’s High School has put together this trip, and I was invited on it as an alumni. As a little bit of background, I have had a passion for missions in Africa for about a year now. I have close friends who have participated in missionary work in Africa and through them and being attentive to the Lord, I feel called to that region of the world. I have been looking for opportunities to travel over there this past year and God finally placed a trip before me as I was visiting home over Christmas break. My 11th grade Bible teacher Mrs. Kispert knows about my passion and invited me along while I was home from Santa Barbara, California, where I am pursuing a Religious Studies major at Westmont College.

Many of the details about the trip are still being figured out since we will not be traveling until the middle of June. Regardless, we will have many serving and learning opportunities. Our time in Rwanda will be spent between working with families in their homes as well as with sports outreach to children. In addition, we will have some time for reflection as we visit a Rwandan genocide memorial. After about a week we will travel to Uganda to work with Pilgrim Africa, which is an organization that provides many different services for those with various needs. We will be doing an array of work with them and will be visiting projects that they have already started.

Please consider praying for our team. Pray for the new friends we will make in Africa. And pray for me: for health and protection on the trip, for my effectiveness in ministry and ability to learn new things from this experience. Pray that I will find the financial support to make this trip possible. As I said, I have a heart for missions and this will be the first opportunity I will have had to actually go on a trip. Pray that I learn a great deal about how mission work comes to fruition across the world and have a better sense of what it means to do mission work.

Another way that you can participate is to support me financially. The cost of the trip is between $3,700-4,500 per person. I am trusting God to move in people’s hearts, leading them to donate toward this mission trip.

In Him,
Karlie Storkson
