Tarja Maunula is the daughter of Pastor Mark Maunula of Isle, MN. She is a senior (and will be graduated by the time of the trip) at Bethany Lutheran College in Mankato studying Sociology. She is looking forward to the Kenya trip and getting to experience another culture, especially since that’s what Sociology is all about. She plans to take a lot of pictures, and is hoping to make some new friends. She’s grateful that God has given her this chance to go to Kenya and learn more about Him and her brothers and sisters in Christ there (and probably herself too)!
Rev. Bernhard Seter has been a Pastor in the Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod for 40 years. He served on the Board of LCMS World Relief and Human Care for ten years and is now the Chairman of the Board of International Missions. He has been privileged to travel around the world and see the churches mercy work in action. He is convinced it is not only what we are "compelled" to do because of Christ; it is what we have been baptized for. Christ love compels us, constrains us and sends us forth.
