HCA Missions Day takes place during our annual Missions Conference here at Heartland. Visiting international guests join HCA students for an all-school chapel to start the day. Our guest speaker this year was Pastor Berit.

After that, students break into groups and travel from class to class, where teachers and guests team up to provide a presentation about specific countries, as well as samples of food from that culture.

Lunch time is a world experience as well: the students pick a string which assigns them rice for lunch, a standard “American meal”, or designates them as a “beggar” who only receives food by asking others. No one goes hungry, and it is an effective way to highlight what children in other nations face.

HCA students and staff alike always look forward to Missions Day.
