NNU’s spring break is fast approaching and with it a week-long student mission trip to Vancouver, B.C. March 23 -30. Nine NNU students led by Director of Student Ministries Julene Tegerstrand and Associate Professor of Art and Design Jamie Tucker will head to Downtown Eastside (DTES), a low-income neighborhood in Vancouver, to share in the life of the DTES community. This trip marks the fifth consecutive year NNU students will have served alongside Mission Possible, a conservative non-denominational mission organization.

This trip to DTES will have an art focus, providing students the opportunity to partner in painting a mural. Even more important is their intention to grow relationally by listening, learning and serving the people and community around them.

Please pray for these students and leaders as they embark on this transformative journey. Pray for their health and safety, that doors of conversation would open and that God would move in their hearts and the hearts of the people they encounter.
