For June and Philip Nelson, a year of volunteering in the Central African Republic in 1978 led to a long career of serving as ELCA missionaries in Africa, most recently in Cameroon from 2006-2014. June says, “Global service has meant to me going where God calls.” Philip adds, “Mission service has formed me, given me a life, given me an understanding of myself and those around me.” To hear a little about their life of service in the global church, click here to watch a short video.
