Lauren Frehner (Yes, we have two Laurens!) is a junior Psychology major. Her hometown is Port Angeles, Washington and she loves her family’s Chile Verde. “The food, the people, and the culture are what excite me most about going on a SPRINT Trip.” She also enjoys the Seattle coffee shop scene in her free time.
Lauren Isham is a sophomore intending on majoring in Nursing and is from the small town of Dallas, Oregon. She is most excited about the opportunity to learn about another country, culture, and to be able to go outside of the United States. She enjoys organizing things and loves volunteering here with people in Seattle.

SPRINT engages Seattle Pacific University students in short-term summer international missions and service trips in partnership with local community leaders around the globe. SPRINT’s pre-trip training and post-trip debriefing processes emphasize the importance of understanding culture, partnering alongside development instead of perpetuating colonialism, and the value of a life-long integration of faith, learning and service.
This summer SPRINT will send teams to 8 countries around the world. Learn more at www.spu.edu/sprint.
In the Dominican Republic, students will place ProVector mosquito control devices and provide training for families in batey communities near Barahona, home to low-income families and marginalized Haitian immigrants. Learn more about our host, Children of the Nations, at www.cotni.org.
