Reaching the world

WWU has more than 50 student missionaries out in the field this year

Every year students at Walla Walla University feel compelled to act out their love of God through service to others. One way in which students can serve others is to go abroad and fill a need at some Adventist institution around the world. There is always a good number of students that go this route, desiring not only to serve God by helping others but also to grow as a person through the experiences they encounter and the people they meet.

For the 2016-2017 school year, WWU has sent out 54 student missionaries to more than 26 different places throughout the world. The majority of them left in either August or September and will return at the end of the school year in May and June. A few of the student missionaries have not left yet but plan on serving abroad during winter or spring quarters. Below is the list of this year’s student missionaries and where they are serving:
