Shortly after Liberty University celebrated its 40th Commencement, Liberty’s Center for Global Engagement (CGE) sent six teams of students, leaders, and recent graduates, to show Christ’s love and meet the needs of individuals around the world.
More than 100 students and leaders have, or are, participating in short-term trips through CGE this summer. In May, groups traveled to Zimbabwe, Ethiopia, Colombia, Cameroon, and two undisclosed locations in Europe. An upcoming trip to Uganda departing this week will include members of the Lady Flames Field Hockey Team.
Teams engaged in relationship building, prayer walks, sports camps, HIV/AIDS education, and drama. They also distributed educational resources and medical supplies. Among those they served were many children, refugees, and orphans.
