Mandy Trusty

I’m the InterVarsity Link Staff Coordinator for Latin America. I served for 5 years with university students in Des Moines, IA before moving to Nicaragua in 2017 to work with the student movement, Comunidad de Estudiantes Cristianos de Nicaragua (CECNIC). In this position, I am assisting with connections between InterVarsity/USA and the 20 IFES (International Fellowship of Evangelical Students) movements in Latin America. InterVarsity Link currently has a team of 9 staff serving with 6 different countries: Colombia, Chile, Ecuador, Costa Rica, Uruguay, and Panama.

Caleb & Olivia Andrews

Our mission is to help college students have a relationship with Jesus, grow in their relationship with Jesus and learn how to share the gospel with others. When students graduate from college, we want them to be active church members and ready to be disciple makers in their workplace and the church. Through your monthly financial support, Olivia and I will be able to invest all our time with students by holding Bible studies, meeting individually with students, and sharing the gospel on UNI’s campus and all around Iowa.

Olivia is a former member of The Ridge and Junkyard.

One of our Ridge Young Adults, and former Junkyardigan, has been called to the mission field in Central Asia and has joined a team with an international missions organization to plant churches and work for justice and transformation. He has been there for two years already and is learning the language and getting his Master’s in Criminal Justice to hopefully join the anti-trafficking and anti-corruption work there. Part of his “mission” there is to assimilate into the culture and get established so that he can begin church planting in the future.

If you’d like to know more specifics, please contact Mary Kohlsdorf, Director of Outreach.
