Hello, My name is Micheal Jon Henke, I am 19 years old, and am currently a sophomore at the University of North Dakota in Grand Forks. I am pursuing a degree in IDS Health Sciences as well as a minor in psychology. I really have an interest for the medical field and hope to attend a graduate school to become a physicians assistant to further my knowledge and ability to serve others. It was once explained to me how important it is to be a source of health in the lives of all people, to provide health for someones physical life is great, but to help someone in the health of their eternal life is of the greatest importance. I hope that wherever I am led in life, that this is a part of my calling. My parents, sister and I reside outside of a small town called Center ND (which is about 40 miles away from Bismarck ND) we enjoy the open space, even if it requires a small drive to wherever we want to go. College keeps me busy with the endless supply of homework and assignments, as well as serving at my campus church. I also have the privilege to be on the planning committee and serve as the “master of ceremonies” for a large youth group just outside of campus. I am very thankful and excited for the opportunity to take this trip to Kenya with such a great group. It will be great to see how God works, and to see what God has in store for all of us.
