Valparaiso Student Testimonials

"Missions requires an incredible amount of humility and one cannot be humble whilst they are clinging to their cultural presuppositions and prideful arrogance. There have been so many instances this semester when I felt like I had no idea what to do or say (in a ministry context), and I had to simply stop what I was doing and watch and learn from my Chilean brothers and sisters to see just how they went about sharing the gospel and loving on people."

Olivia Neveu, Houghton College, Chile

"I loved Veritas because it gave me a safe place to be open and honest with the thoughts and emotions I was experiencing during my time abroad. I had a place where I knew I was loved and cared for and I cared for each person in the Veritas group so much! It was definitely much-needed community and really fun as well."

Sydney L., Point Loma Nazarene University, Chile

"Veritas created community during an experience that has a lot of difficulty. It promoted growth and encouragement in your view of what loving those around you means."

Hannah S., University of Arkansas, Chile

"My meetings with my mentor were one of the highlights of the whole trip for me. I had no idea that I would get close to two hours a week with a woman that poured into my spiritual life so much. I grew in my faith greatly because of my time with my mentor. I am very thankful that mentorship is a part of the Veritas program. My time in Chile would have been completely different without it."

Emily E., Oklahoma Baptist University
