MOBILE, Ala. – University of Mobile has sent 12 students and three staff on Youth Hostel Mission trips to travel in Europe, the United Kingdom and Ireland for three weeks.

Youth Hostel Missions is a UM annual mission trip designed to give students opportunities to share the Gospel with other travelers while experiencing Christian community and intense discipleship.

Students stay in hostels (low-cost travel housing) and establish relationships with travelers from all over the world. They also get to tour some of the most amazing sights and places in the world.

Before leaving for three weeks, the students go through 14 weeks of intentional discipleship.

These teams are journaling about their experiences at umobile.edu/YHM.
