Hey everyone!! I’m Eden. I’m going to be a junior at Memorial High School next year, and this will be my first time ever in Romania!
A little about me:
I have been involved in Blackhawk’s youth ministries since elementary school, and in middle school I participated in home groups, worship team, leadership team, and Madison Missions. I then went on a mission trip to Alaska that was one of the most amazing experiences of my life! Now, I am a part of home groups, Servant team, the mentoring program, and volunteer in the children’s ministries.
Other than what I do with Blackhawk, I have many interests and passions (I’m known for being ambitious!). I play violin in the Wisconsin Youth Symphony Orchestra (Phil), run cross country, row, and act/sing in musicals. Additionally, I am in a scholarship program to UW-Madison called PEOPLE and a teaching program called TEEM. My hobbies include photography, cooking, reading, and yoga. I have a passion for social justice and education.
It’s crazy to think that in only 4 short days, my team and I will be going to Romania! Although I have no idea what to expect, I am so excited to see what work God has been doing there with the Open Roads Orphan ministries. I cannot wait to have my eyes opened and my heart humbled by His glory! I’m positive that this trip will have a huge influence on my life.
Lastly, thank you SO much to all friends and family who supported this trip. I am amazed by the generosity of so many people who were willing to give! It means so much to me. Please continue to pray for our team to be energized, healthy, and humble as we head into this trip, so that we may love on the Romanians to the best of our abilities through Christ.
Thanks for reading!!
