Heart of Service

0
Twenty-year-old Marisa Thomason has a passion for serving others, and as she is continuing her education at Greenville College, she’s finding exactly where God is asking her to direct that passion. Raised in Brownstown, IL, Thomason settled on Greenville College primarily to remain close to her family, but she also appreciated the Christian community the campus provides. With those two factors in mind, her choice to attend Greenville College (only thirty minutes from home) was easy. She originally entered as an Elementary Education major, but in the last few months her future goals have begun to change. Now a sophomore, Thomason finds herself being drawn to mission work instead. Her desire to help others on a deeper, personal level has become clearer to her and she specifically feels led to work with human trafficking victims. This calling prompted her to leave the education department and directed her to social work. “Over Christmas break, my heart grew soft toward those who are in slavery,” Thomason explains. “I want to work with victims of human trafficking and help free them from their situations.” As such, she became inspired to join the Set Free Movement on the college campus.
