It was a great time for us to witness the heart for Lisbon that the staff there have, despite being the only full time workers. Our goal was to make new contacts with people, who would potentially be up for knowing more about the relationship they can have with Jesus. It was both challenging and exciting and helped us to share our faith with students, despite a language barrier. This experience has helped to shape our conversations whilst back at university, and helped us to minister in ways that we never thought of before! I was truly blessed by the opportunity and the team that I was lucky enough to serve with out in Lisbon!
Through summer projects I’ve come to understand how God desires to use each of us purposefully and uniquely in His plan to reach those who have not yet heard about Jesus, bringing them back to Him.
In St. Petersburg we saw the work He is already doing and felt humbled and blessed to be part of His mission to Russia for a short time. Projects are absolutely top notch fun and full of challenges that took me far from my comfort zone but far closer to God. Sharing life and purpose with other team members who quickly became great friends was a real encouragement.
Through summer projects I learnt this gives me a real buzz. Being in tune with God’s heart and seeing Him working in the lives of students so that they can be alive in Him, experiencing real freedom and real life – it’s incredible!

I haven't forgotten about you. You’re the ray of sunshine in my life! I can tell you that my life has changed since I've become a Christian - of course, in a good way! It's so wonderful, I simply can’t explain it!

This for me has to be one of the most exciting places in the world to do ministry. The chance to share with people in the country with the richest theological, spiritual, and political past, and maybe present in the world is a privilege few will ever have.
