ELKHART, Ind. (Mennonite Mission Network) – Nicole Diehl, of Perkasie, Pa., began a Service Adventure assignment Aug. 21 in Johnstown, Pa.
A 2006 graduate of Pennridge High School, Diehl is the daughter of Linda and Mark Diehl and attends Rocky Ridge Mennonite Church.
In this program of Mennonite Mission Network, young adults, age 17-20, live in a household community with a leader for 10 Â½ months. Since 1989 Service Adventure participants have served in medical clinics, tutored children, worked with senior citizens, repaired old housing and helped meet needs across North America. Theyâ€™ve visited new cities; experienced different people, foods and cultures; climbed mountains and camped in deserts; attended concerts, lectures and college events.
But the most memorable experiences often occur in the quiet moments: a conversation with a housemate, a friendship with a small child, working alongside other Christians, getting involved in a new congregation, or being alone with God.
Mennonite Mission Network is the mission agency of Mennonite Church USA and envisions every congregation and all parts of the church will, together, be fully engaged in Godâ€™s mission sharing all of Christ with all creation.
