Students at the SMS are engaged in some of Steiger’s front line missionary work: participating in music and artistic tours and events; going to some of Europe’s largest art and music festivals; and being part of the local youth scene in European cities.

We have a family motto: “Good and hard always go together.” I heard this all the time growing up. Maybe it doesn’t seem like such a revolutionary thought, but this simple concept has had an enormous impact on my life.

“In the crowd, I saw an aggressive man moving towards me as if he would attack, but instead he stopped right in front of me. Then he said he felt something like peace and he would like to have it inside of him.  I prayed that the Holy Spirit would fill him. No sooner had the conversation finished, another man came who wanted prayer and wished to have the freedom of Christ.”
