CALL TO INTERNATIONAL FIELDS
Rick: After I graduated from high school, I stayed out of college for a year. During that year, I was invited to minister with a summer team as a translator and tech man. We passed through so many villages without any witness, and the people were begging for us to stay and teach them about Jesus. God touched my heart and called me to people who were unreached and least accessible.
Elisabeth: When I entered Columbia International University as a freshman, I believed the facts stood clear that I was needed where there was no opportunity to hear the Good News. When I was a sophomore, I attended a memorial service for a martyred alumnus, Chet Bitterman. At the end of the service, the speaker asked for all those who would fill in Chet's place on the front lines to stand. I felt a clear, strong, passionate assurance to stand and offer my life.
