The student missionary experience is an integral part of Walla Walla University life. For over 50 years, Walla Walla students have been acting on Christ’s command to love people in every nation. As teachers, radio technicians, pilots, and public relations workers, student missionaries live out the missions of Walla Walla University and the Seventh-day Adventist church. Stepping into this experience is one of the most defining decisions a person can make. The cost is high, but the reward is higher. Former student missionaries often describe their experience as the hardest experience they’ve ever endured, as well as the best thing they’ve ever done.
