College Students Learn about Technical Missions over Spring Break

During the first week of March, the HCJB Global Technology Center hosted ten students and their sponsor from Cedarville University who came to Elkhart to spend their spring break. Our objective is to help these students learn how they can contribute to missionary work and the spread of the gospel with their technical talents.CedarvilleUPStest
