The Grace Conference in Mission took place this week (Monday-Thursday), with the emphasis on “Crossing the Borders.” Jeff Lewis, a global activist, international speaker, and assistant professor of intercultural studies at California Baptist University, was the chapel speaker.
In addition, 25 representatives from 13 mission organizations were on campus to lead seminars and interact with students. Grace College alumni Jeremiah and Marcie Olson led the music and worship during the week.
Eleven Grace students will be studying overseas during the spring semester through Grace’s Study Abroad Program. They are:
Argentina: Amy McIlwain and Keegan Boucek
France (Dijon): Sarah Peters, Sharon Hoyt, Lynae Peugh, and Brian Zaro
France (Paris): Catherine Etner, Tiffany Sandlian, and Jennifer McCaman

Five of the students, Sarah, Catherine, Tiffany, Jennifer, and Krista, have been studying abroad during the fall semester as well. You’re encouraged to pray for the Study Abroad students in this important step of their education.
