In connection with the Conference on Mission, which is being held this week at Grace College in Winona Lake, Ind., the ninth annual “Taste of the World,” will be held on Wednesday, October 24, from 6:30-8:30 p.m. in Rodeheaver Auditorium.
Guests can “travel” from country to country via booths and hands-on displays, enjoying food, music, art, media, and games from more than 20 countries and cultures. Admission is $4 for adults, $2 for students, and $6 for families. Children 12 and under are free. This event is sponsored by Grace’s chapter of Mu Kappa International, which includes nearly 100 students from 50 countries.
This week’s conference theme is “Through Fear to Faith.” Special chapel speakers are Bible translator Marilyn Laszlo from the Laszlo Mission League, and Oswaldo Magdangal, president and founder of Christians in Crisis. Thirty-five mission representatives will be on campus during conference to talk with students about ministry possibilities and to lead seminars.
One feature of this year’s conference is a “round-theclock” prayer time, coordinated by students, which runs throughout the conference. Students and employees are encouraged to sign up for specific times to pray in the Upper Room in McClain Hall.
