Hej! :) 

My name is Michelle Mergens - MA to Copenhagen, Denmark!

Having grown up in an active duty military family, I spent much of my life living overseas in Europe. After graduating high school in Germany, I moved back to the states to pursue a degree in Art Education. Coming to college, I wanted to find a faith community right away. Within the first few weeks of college, I got invovled with Chi Alpha! Even though I had a personal relationship with the Lord before coming to college, my life was radically transformed by Jesus through this campus ministry! Little did I know that God was putting me on the path to ministry. As I went through my undergrad program, my desire to teach art shifted to teaching others about Jesus. After graduating college in 2014, I did a Chi Alpha internship with my alma mater. Before I finished my internship, I knew God was leading me to continue as a missionary/staff with Chi Alpha. 

About three years ago, after leading our Chi Alpha spring break mission trip, God started to give me a burden for university students in Copenhagen. A month after my first mission trip there, I went on a two-day silent, prayer retreat. While alone in a cabin in the woods, the Lord told me that I would go back to Denmark in two years. A couple years go by and I find myself leading the Chi Alpha mission trip to Denmark again! In the months leading up to this second trip, God started to reveal that He was leading me to go for more than a 10 day mission trip...

Months after my second trip, I was so burdened by the fact that there were many young people at a crossroads in their lives, longing for purpose but not finding it in Jesus. In July 2018, I made the commitment to go for 1 year with the intent to pray about a lifetime. 

 I am excited to be joining the team of missionaries who pioneered Students for Christ in Copenhagen, Denmark, to continue the work of reconciling students for Christ. My goal is to be there January 20, 2020. Will you consider partnering with me in prayer and finances so that we may see the heart of Denmark transformed?
