Another year to a close

This year, our club has made changes and added events.

We have served near and far.
[From Honduras to Haiti to Champaign, IL]

We held the first of many Fall Retreats.
[8 girls + John in a cabin in Indiana]

We ventured to Knoxville, TN, for Real Life Real Impact.
[We had 17 people make the trip]

We adopted a Field Staff member.
[Dr. Lauren Charles is such a God-send]

We switch Bible study to Mondays.
[To the dismay of many leaving 4th years]

But most importantly, we grew closer to God and further into His mission for our group.

I truly believe that our purpose is to reach out to the closet Christians and the non-believers in the veterinary community to, both, show them the light and to strengthen their faith. We were joined by many new people throughout the year and their commitment has helped increase our presence in veterinary medicine in Illinois and across the world (as many of them are going on international mission trips this summer).

Only one word can describe this year.
