Welcome to this blog. My name is Joel Sutherland. I'm a Theology student at Southern Adventist University in beautiful Chattanooga, Tennessee. From May 14 - June 4 I will be on a mission trip to Sierra Leone, Africa, preaching an evangelistic series in a church in Freetown. I have heard the internet is very poor where I'll be staying, but I will try to update this blog as often as possible. Thank you so much for your prayers as I embark on this journey!
