“It was a blessing to be able to come to New Jersey and share my faith with others while strengthening my own faith,” says Lily Storlie, a 2021 graduate of Lakeside Lutheran High School, Lake Mills, Wis.

These students made up 15 mission teams that volunteered around the United States, helping with canvassing, sports and science camps, vacation Bible schools, food pantry collections, and other mission projects.
