Cedarville University medical students spent spring break in Côte d'Ivoire, Africa, and opened doors for evangelism in area villages. Elyssa Reyes holds a young child during the missions trip.


When Dr. Thomas Mach, vice president for academics, originally pitched the idea of a missions trip to the Ivory Coast to serve alongside his missionary brother, Bob, he didn’t expect much interest. Instead, more than 60 students attended the introductory meeting and Dr. Angelia Mickle, dean of the school of nursing, also expressed an interest in going. A medical missions trip was planned for spring break and on March 3, Mach and Mickle, accompanied by 13 students, left for Côte d'Ivoire.
