Hello everybody! My name is Elissa Barber, and I am a 20 year-old Integrated Studies major with a minor in Mathematics. I will be graduating next year with this major, which is better known as the Elementary Education major. I hope to be an elementary school teacher, and have always wanted to mix that with missions work, so this is the perfect trip for me!
We will be partnering with Fisher Superkids in Danang, Vietnam, to teach English and lead a summer camp. I am so excited to go to Vietnam and see what God has in store for me and my team!
Some prayer requests that I have for the trip are that God will teach me patience in working with the people in Vietnam, as well as growing closer to my team both now and in country. Most of all, I am praying that I will be able to positively represent Christ through the relationships I will be developing in country, and that everything I learn and experience will continue to change me when I am back in the United States, instead of just being a once in a lifetime experience that only lives on in pictures and memories.
