KARE-11 news ran a story on Friday, February 27 regarding the recent travel alerts that have been issued concerning travel in Mexico. The story referenced Northwestern College since we have been sending students to the Tijuana community of La Roca for over 10 years, providing the opportunity for students to serve abused women and children as part of the Servants Network ministry.
Melody Walburg coordinates a variety of spring break mission trips which involve dozens of NWC students and leaders from Northwestern's faculty and staff. Numerous proactive precautions are taken in preparation for these international trips, including registering each group with the U.S. State Department, tracking alerts and warnings, and consulting with hosts in the field.
