Community Service Outing

In a recent community service trip, a handful of Columbia students spent the day assembling radios for international mission work. Student’s volunteered with Galcom International Canada, a North America organization that seeks ship missionary radios around the world with the help of overseas partners. Along with learning how to build radios from scratch, the students were taught the important role radio messaging plays in the lives of those who cannot read.
