Urbana 2012  changed lives. Hundreds, even thousands, of university students from across North America responded to “the Great Invitation”, a challenge to live a missional life.  I had the privilege of taking a team of 9 Camino missionaries and staff to exhibit at Urbana.  During the 5-day event, God gave us the privilege of connecting meaningfully with 365 students that are interested in exploring opportunities for short, mid or long-term service with Camino Global.

Urbana is a mega missions conference that takes place every three years in St. Louis during the last week of the year.  Sandwiched between Christmas and New Years’ Day, with a closing ceremony that goes past midnight on New Years’ Eve, Urbana always falls during our wedding anniversary (December 30th).  In 23 years of marriage, I have only missed our anniversary two times, and both of them were because I was at Urbana.  The Urbana conference has been challenging students toward mission service since 1948.
