East Asia Western Peace

Enroll as a student in a East Asian university for the summer and serve alongside local Christians in planting a ministry in an unreached part of the world. Participate in cross-cultural ministry by taking initiative with East Asian students interested in speaking English. Friendships formed during this time may be among the most challenging and blessed relationships you ever develop. Learn to partner with God step-by-step in this new context. Prepare to be challenged to go deeper in your willingness to relate, adjust and love in a beautiful culture very different from your own!
