I am David Shillingstad and I am going to be a Junior at Oregon High School. With 6 days left in Wisconsin my excitement is growing as I prepare to leave for Romania. I am anxious to see how God will use me and what he will show me as I work with the orphans. This trip will truly be an amazing time to build relationships with the many orphans that I will meet. I have done mission work two times before in Mexico when I was younger, and I really miss the experience of seeing how God works in people and uses the opportunity to create changes within me.
I enjoy running competitively on the Cross Country and track team at school, playing guitar, getting to know people, and working with my hands. I have an older sister and brother and also one younger sister. My family and I love outdoor activities!
My favorite movie is Lord of the Rings because I really enjoy the way that J.R.R Tolkien incorporated his faith into the storyline. My favorite book series, is the Chronicles of Narnia because it is an amazing presentation of the story of Christ. I have been volunteering at the Blackhawk Fitchburg site since it started about a year ago. I love bringing God glory with my gift of giving my time and always trying to put others first.
