This past weekend I was in Louisville, Kentucky along with 40 other Hope students. We attended the Global Health Missions Conference. The conference was absolutely amazing! We were able to hear a variety of speakers and learn about their different experiences serving in different places all around the world. It was also a great opportunity to get to know other people from Hope who share common interests as me. We left early Thursday morning for Kentucky and attended the conference until Saturday afternoon. We stayed at family’s house that attends the church where the conference was located. The conference took place at Southeast Christian Church in Louisville, and is the 8th largest church in America! It was great to be able to experience seeing a church that big. The conference was so good, and I really learned a lot through listening to the different speakers. The family who we stayed with was so kind and welcoming. They allowed all 40 of us to stay in their very nice large house. Each evening when we came back from the conference they had food waiting for us. They definitely displayed some great southern hospitality.
I definitely want to attend the conference again next year. I am really grateful that Hope offers this opportunity for students.
Have a great week!
