Around the World and Home Again – TKA Alumni Share Global Experiences with Current Elementary Students
This year, TKA Homecoming week was not only celebrated with games and contests, but also with alumni who returned to campus to share about what God has been doing in their lives. Riley Hall, Edison Aubrey, and Grant Rollins came back to their former elementary school classroom to share about their recent mission trips. Hall, a sophomore at Pellisippi State, shared about his eight-week internship with Mike Parker and Clubhouse Guatemala. He was inspired to return to Guatemala after going on his senior mission trip with his classmates in high school. Aubrey, a senior ESL major at Johnson University, spent a similar time period in Colombia working with praise and worship teams and teaching in a private school there. The most recent graduate of TKA and freshman at Walter’s State, Grant Rollins, discussed his nine-day trip to lead Vacation Bible School for the Lakota tribe in Eagle Butte, South Dakota. Each of the young men shared that God began leading them to missions with other cultures through varied experiences in the multi-cultural environment of the Academy. Fourth graders enjoyed their visit, asking questions, seeing pictures, and praying for the ministries of TKA alumni around the world.
