Jernberg: Missionary Work in Functional Chaos: Kolkata, India

What an unforgettable experience! My time spent in India was filled with so much joy, prayer, great people, friendly locals, exploring, and cultural experiences. Before heading to Austria for my study abroad semester with Franciscan University, I went to India for two weeks. I was very lucky and blessed to be invited on this trip. We traveled in order to volunteer and help the Missionaries of Charity (founded by Mother Teresa). I went to Kolkata with 21 other eager american men and women between the ages of 19 and 24. They all work as counsellors at a christian outdoor adventure camp in North Carolina.
