ALA students have a wonderful opportunity to use their talents in other parts of the country as part of WELS Kingdom Workers' "Faith in Action" mission trips.
Want to help support ALA students in these efforts? Please pray that the Holy Spirit will bless our students and keep them safe in their travels.
If you'd also like to support them financially for these trips, they would appreciate your help! Give a gift to the ALA Mission Club here
. The Mission Club funds half of each trip, so we'll divide your gift equally among the Mission Trips participants. Select Fund "Other" and type "Mission Club" in the comments.

FAITH IN ACTION - Mississauga, Ontario, Canada:
I was blessed to volunteer for the soccer camp at Cross of Life this summer. While there, I worked with seven and eight-year-old kids.
It was great to develop a bond with each of them. I was so happy to be asked why the message from the Bible was important. I shared what God has done for us and then encouraged them take a Bible to their parents and share with them what we talked about. We even had some families want to know more about the church and were planning to come the next Sunday.
