I write this knowing that words on a page only have so much impact. Yet, when you see the face of the people who are daily experiencing adversity for Christ, service takes on a whole new meaning. Serving these soldiers for Christ at Haus Edelweiss was one of the most rewarding and humbling experiences of my life. Every day we got the opportunity to make sure that their studies were top priority. I served on the guest services team where we cleaned, organized, and set up for the students. The gratefulness of the students awed me. They did not believe they were entitled to anything, but were so thankful to be able to experience service. In their countries, many are faced with suffering and ridicule because of their love for Christ. But at the Haus they are surrounded by love from others. I am so thankful I got to be a part of something that affects Christianity around the world.
