From local reports
A team of Ohio Valley University students and instructors returned recently from a United Kingdom mission trip.
Members of the team spent their spring break ministering to churches, children and seniors during a mission trip to the United Kingdom from March 1 to 9.
The team was led by Michael Moss, dean of the School of Biblical Studies at OVU, and Chris Mullins, associate minister at the 36th Street Church of Christ in Vienna, W.Va., and an OVU adjunct instructor. Others going were Van Wilson, Craig Swearingen, Chris Mickey, Virginia Moss, Gina Rondeau, J.P. Suchecki, Lance Griffin and Chantelle Mickey.
The group worked with a small Church of Christ church in Newcastle, England, throughout the week distributing information, teaching Bible classes, conducting a Fun Night for area children, singing at a nursing home, singing in a local mall and teaching English to international students.
The group experienced a full week of traveling and ministering to local congregations and communities. Mullins preached while Moss taught Bible classes and conducted a seminar on I Timothy for Christians in nearby churches in England and Scotland. Students also spent time visiting and enjoying meals with local church members.
The group also explored nearby sites, including Hadrian’s Wall (built by the emperor Hadrian to separate England and Scotland); the Granger Market where they sang, and an area fish shop where they ate fish and chips at the sea side (North Sea); a local lighthouse and castle; and Alnwick Castle in Edinburgh, Scotland.
