Rachel will be partnering with Experience Mission focusing on relational ministry while living with a host family and learning the simplicity of village life. As she follows the guidance of an experienced missionary, she'll learn Portuguese, see how tribal traditions influence faith, and better understand the tribe’s worldview. Rachel will be working through the local church to provide this community with fun life changing experiences that will introduce them to Christ.
Rachel is a Senior from Sycamore, Illinois studying Mechanical Engineering. Outside of school she leads local high school freshman girls, and plays intramural softball and broomball. After graduation, Rachel will be working as a Mechanical Engineer in Missouri. She is excited to be pushed outside her comfort zone this summer and get closer with God before she begins the new chapter of her life.
