In order to understand the different aspects of mission work worldwide, Baylor University Chapel students will hear three missionaries speak at 10 and 11 a.m. Monday, Oct. 13, in Waco Hall.

"We wanted to help students see that missions has many different forms," said Steve Graves, Baylor's director of student ministries. "We're bringing three people offering different perspectives on missions work, people who are encouraging and inspiring."

Mark Alexander works with the International Mission Board in Córdoba, Argentina. He and his family are on furlough, and are currently working with Baptist Student Ministries as part of "Missionaries in Residence," a program that seeks to connect students and missionaries. He will speak about the study abroad program as a ministry opportunity for students.

Robin Hanna is a missionary in Honduras, working with "Signs of Love," an organization that focuses on deaf education. Baylor ministries have partnered with Hanna on several mission trips, and she will speak to students about using their gifts and talents on the mission field.

Eraina Larson will speak to students about missions-related internship opportunities. Larson works with Buckner Orphan Care International and ministers to children across the globe.
