Wheaton in Spain Testimonials

Kristin Paddon - Wheaton in Spain alumnaMy experience participating in Wheaton in Spain not only increased my language ability, but also shaped my view of the Kingdom of God. While in Spain, I took on the role of a learner. My Spanish comprehension was limited, so I had to rely on others to help me understand the language. On top of this, living in a different country caused me to reimagine what I considered to be culturally normal. Through these experiences, I learned that each country and culture reflects God in unique ways and has something to bring to the table.


My experience as a Spanish major at Wheaton has pushed me to grow and learn in so many ways. I am so glad I participated in the Wheaton in Spain study abroad trip because I learned so much about the country of Spain and its history, but more importantly, I realized what an amazing opportunity we have as Christians to connect with people from different cultures. This experience, along with Wheaton's wonderful faculty, encouraged me to keep studying Spanish even though it did not always come easily to me. The passions I have seen in my professors for language learning, culture, and faith have been truly inspiring for me and I can not express how grateful I am for their efforts to help me to grow in my Spanish speaking ability, but also as a follower of Christ.
