At their latest meeting, the Missions Club worked on plans for Missions Emphasis Week.

November 10 to 15 will be Missions Emphasis Week at Southwestern. Missions Club is planning the week with a purpose is to increase awareness of the student missionaries who are out serving and to encourage students to become involved in missions.

Isaí Ramírez, Missions Club president, says Missions Emphasis Week is one of his favorite weeks during the school year. He wants everyone to be a missionary, whether in this country or another one.

Right now, Southwestern has five student missionaries who are each serving in a different location: Emily Nolasco in Poland, Dylan Sargent in Thailand, Israel Gonzalez in Nicaragua, Yesenia Gonzalez in the Philippines, and Pierre Ortiz doing Task Force in Holbrook, Arizona. Every day during Missions Week will focus on a different missionary and the work they are doing.

Specific missions calls will be promoted each day, including mission trips that students could choose to go on.

“We want to inspire students to feel the call to be missionaries. Promoting specific calls will show what the different possibilities could be,” Ramírez says.

The week will include a missions village with missions calls and pictures of the current student missionaries. Students who have been student missionaries will give short testimonies about their mission trips.

Missions will also be promoted during assembly, co-ed worship, Friday Night Worship, and SWAY. The guest speaker will be Elder Don Keele, Jr., young adult ministries director for Georgia-Cumberland Conference.

“I’m excited, because I want everyone to know what missions is all about,” Evelyn Rubio, vice president of the Missions Club says. “I’m excited to support out student missionaries with their missions and get the school involved as well.”
