My name is Alyssa Colbert and I am an intern with high school ministries this summer! I am going to be a senior at UW-Madison majoring in Human Development and Family Studies. Few things about me: I love kids, especially babies; I love coffee; I love polar bears; && I love speaking in accents.
I started walking with Jesus my freshman year of high school and since then, it has been the best and craziest ride!! I am really involved in a campus ministry at Madison called Cru (or Campus crusade for Christ). Last summer, I went to Nicaragua with a group called Adventures in Missions in which I lived at an orphanage for two months with nineteen other women doing ministry and showing love to those who don’t know it.
Especially since being back from Nicaragua, I have a huge heart for orphans and showing those who don’t know love that they are cherished and adored by the perfect example of love and compassion.
I am so excited to experience God in Romania in a few short days! I look forward to building relationships with the students and leaders stepping out in faith alongside me. Also, bonding with the Romanians; learning their stories and seeing how God continues to pursue them even though they have been so hurt by this world and the darkness in it.
Prayers for safe travels, unity as a team, and patience and compassion towards each other and the Romanians would be greatly appreciated!
Thank you so much for your support and I can’t wait to share with you all God is doing and has done in Romania! 🙂
