Wesleyan’s Mission Trip Team Serves in South Africa

in Features by

The Wesleyan Mission Trip team has been serving in South Africa for years and each year the trip impacts even more people than before. This year’s team, led by Mr. Lisson, Dr. Pinkett-Smith, Mrs. Hemken, Mr. Russell and Ms. Stephenson, traveled from Atlanta to Johannesburg for a two week trip filled with service.

When they arrived in Johannesburg, they stayed at an organization called Impact Africa, which provides ministry and creates jobs for local South Africans. From the start, they knew their trip was going to be extremely beneficial both for them and the people they were serving.

The many activities and worship sessions kept the team busy for the whole trip. While in Johannesburg, the team walked through townships, shared the gospel with people, played with different groups of preschool children and run two days of Vacation Bible School. Many students’ favorite moments came from their time at VBS. Junior Sydney Stirling said, “Doing VBS for the community was definitely a high point from my trip, and I will never forget the joy I brought to them.” Lisson said, “I think the highlight for me was a worship night we had on Wednesday night. It was the first moment I realized just how far we had come in the few days we had been together.”

Ending the last softball season with a State Championship set the bar high for the 2018 season; however, the Wesleyan Softball season has gone above and beyond with their season so far.

The team kicked off the road to state with a Region Championship win for the sixth year in a row, and they are entering into the state tournament in the first seed. The Wolves defeated Landmark Christian School 7-2 and junior Madison Kerpics pitched the entire games, “while striking out 18 people to earn the win in the circle” (Gwinnett Prep Sports). “Our team really worked together to win the region game. Everyone played well and our ability to work together is what really helped us throughout that game and the season,” said senior Savannah Sommer. The win for the team was impressive, but what came with the win was even better. “After the game, we got new golden cleats as a deal with our coaches, which was almost as great as winning the game,” said senior Jennifer Nolan.
