Service Learning

May 4, 2016

Dear Women of Vision,

My name is Rachel McCausland and I am a junior communication major at Carson-Newman. I am also a member of Young Women of Promise (YWOP) and serve as the Secretary on the Leadership Council. I have been elected as president of YWOP for 2016-17. I am excited to fulfill this position and help my fellow students beautify the campus and build a community of support. I also serve in other campus organizational leadership roles such as an Eagle Guide, the Eagle Production Company (EPC), and next year I will serve as the Public Relations Chair of EPC.

As you may know, service learning is part of many of our classes here at C-N and that is primarily for communications courses. My sophomore year, I was involved in service learning with the Missions Place by TEAM (The Evangelical Alliance Mission) when I became aware of their mission internships for college students. I have always had a passion for serving, so I began the process of getting an internship with TEAM. After quite a while, I am now preparing to go serve in Italy this summer.

In Italy, I will work as a children’s day camp worker. I will help lead arts and crafts, games, and teach English. Most importantly, I will be able to share God’s love with children of all faiths. I cannot do with this without support though. I need to raise around $4,000 for my trip by June 1. I’m asking you to prayerfully considering supporting my trip.

If you feel called to give, you may donate at: https://secure2.convio.net/team/site/SPageServer?pagename=donatenow&did=6584 or you may mail cash or check to CN Box 70570 2130 Branner Ave Jefferson City, TN 37801.

If you have any questions please email me at rlmccausland@cn.edu or call (865) 382-9878. God has given me the opportunity to go serve in His name and I have faith that it will all work out.

Please consider giving and help me be God’s love to His children in Italy.

In Christ,

Rachel McCausland
