Presenter: Sarah DePriest  
As a lifelong Lutheran, Sarah DePriest grew up thinking that Lutherans just didn’t “do” mission work. Her first experience serving in Guatemala with her teenage daughter made her realize how wrong she was!  At MOST Ministries, Sarah connects with individuals, churches, civic groups, and other organizations across the U.S. and presents mission opportunities.  She gives them the guidance and tools to choose a short term mission experience that will have a profound effect on the unreached and on their own lives.
