Hi, my name is Dean Lipinski, and I am 18 years old from Hallock, Minnesota.  I am a senior at Kittson Central High School and I will graduate in May.  My church is Trinity Lutheran in Drayton, North Dakota.  I plan to attend NDSU next fall where I hope to major in Computer Engineering.

I am very active in my town of Hallock in both school and community activities.  My favorites are playing football (Go Bearcats!), my school’s Robotics and Envirothon teams, 4-H, and leading an ecumenical youth group out of Hallock with a few friends.  I enjoy my summers because I work at my local pool as both a lifeguard and a Water Safety Instructor.

I am very excited to be a part of the trip to Kenya and be able to use my talents that God has given me.  I am excited to learn more about the Kenyan culture, and my heart is open to learning and experiencing all that I can there.

“I can do all things through him who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:13
