When Morgan and I began dating one of our friends mentioned to him that in choosing me he was also choosing LST. How true that was! It’s been great for us to serve together.
Our first project was just a few months after our wedding. We participated in a 3-week reading project to Vitoria, Brazil with some friends from the Canyon View Church of Christ in San Diego, CA.
That project was followed by these:
- Lausanne, Switzerland
- Ghent, Belguim (just Jessica, Morgan stayed in OK for school)
- Xian, China
- Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
- Panama City, Panama
Though each site was very different than the others, there are many things that were the same. In each city we worked with a church that was excited to be welcoming new people who were interested in English and the Bible. Each place also gave us the opportunity to study with people with lots of different backgrounds, various ages, nationalities, and familiarity with the text. In each project there were some who were very interested in the material we were reading and were eager to keep meeting with the local church once we left.
