For 6 weeks of the past summer, Annalise (Missions ministry major senior from Colorado) participated in everyday life with veteran missionaries in Tanzania—from teaching a VBS class to eating baked termites! She says she loved the people, the culture, even the language (Swahili), and she would love to go back if God so leads.
Annalise's time in Africa also gave her a new appreciation for the privilege of studying at ABC: "I got to experience their Bible college for one day. These people come for one week out of the year. They stay in storage containers which they've turned into dorms and a lot of people fit into them on bunk beds. They just study intensively that one week and get a lot of training."
"It was really neat for me to see the sacrifice that those people make to study the Bible. And yet here I am every day at Bible college and I take it for granted so much. A lot of these people traveled long distances and they had to come up with the money to pay for the bus fare. One day I know they ran out of food... but it didn't matter to these people. They were there studying the Bible and they were excited about it."
