Until last night, I don’t think I’d ever had a slice of cake cost $1,000 dollars. For one thing, I’m not a huge fan of cake (I’d much rather have pie!). For another, I can’t imagine a cake being worth that much money.
And the people who were shelling out the big bucks were mostly students living on tight budgets. But last night these Heritage students, assisted by faculty, staff and missions representatives, pooled their money to overpay for a variety of home-made cakes at Heritage’s Cake Auction for Missions.
All the money raised goes to support Heritage students who are headed out on missions trips this summer, especially a group of students who are part of the one-year program we call The Serve Experience. Students in this program get a year of Bible and intercultural training and then spend the summer overseas (this year in Indonesia). It’s an outstanding opportunity for spiritual growth and ministry training.
If you know a young person who should consider coming to Heritage for a year of university-level courses plus an eight-week summer missions trip, encourage them to check out The Serve Experience. More info can be found here.
We will send them on their way — with some cake!
