King’s Students and Alumni Visit Kenya, Nicaragua, Canada, Detroit, Napa and Laos for 2018 Missions Trips
Karlie Storkson, King’s Alumna of the class of 2012, shares her thoughts about chaperoning a mission trip to Kenya:
“I’m so incredibly grateful to have been able to help chaperone a trip to Kenya with King’s. I have a deep love of Jesus, relationships, travel, and sports and I knew God opened this door for me to go on a trip that was about just those things. It was my first experience being a chaperone on a trip of this magnitude and though it took some time to find my place, it was a rewarding experience getting to help facilitate and observe the happenings on the trip. I was also extremely encouraged to watch the students jump in to both run sports camps as well as relationally connect with all the Kenyans we met along the way.
There are countless memories I could share from the trip, but here is one that highlights a sweet moment for me as a former Knight. I was with Eric Rasmussen pumping up basketballs on the evening of Easter and he said, “It’s a little bit like the Kingdom of God getting to run sports camps in another country. How cool to be spending Easter preparing for it.” God brought people from different nations together and the interactions created an incredible amount of joy, genuine relationships, and broke down barriers between people. It was a blessing to be a part! I know the entire team will carry this trip with them for the rest of their lives.”

Alumni Feature: John Aydelott, Class of 1980
Our alumni often tell us that they still feel the impact of King’s Schools reverberating throughout different areas of their lives. Many went on to pursue ministry work after graduation, some met their future spouse on campus, and more still can trace their spiritual life to roots at King’s.
Alumni like John Aydelott can point back to King’s and say, “That’s where it all started.”
John joined the graduating class of 1980 as a 7th grader—three weeks late into the start of a new school year—and felt out of place. Click here to read more
