Barret '02 and Carrie (Robinson) Hendrickson '01,

Are taking their family and heading to the island of Abaco in The Bahamas to join the Caribbean Youth Network to minister to hurting families in the wake of devastation following Hurricane Dorian last September. They also are offering to host mission trips to help in the rebuilding of Marsh Harbour in the name of Jesus. God began calling them to this ministry long before they set foot in Abaco. In fact, it began at Geneva. For Carrie, Dr. Terry Thomas walked alongside her as she changed majors four times "and pointed me to God in a patient, loving and fun way," said Carrie. "I had many professors pour out God's love and grace into my life during my years at Geneva. God used Evangelism, taught by Dean Smith, in huge ways, and I still use things I learned in this class in current ministry." Barrett also places great value on the support of Terry Thomas and Brad Frey during his time at Geneva. In addition, he is grateful for his network of friends that he met at Geneva, many who are working in full-time ministry. Carrie offers this advice to potential and current students at Geneva: "Be patient. His timing makes little sense to us. Focus on Jesus. We have been changed by God's grace and mercy, and He has used 2 Timothy 2:1-7 to convict us and remind us daily, that our aim is to please the One who enlisted us."
