Hello! I am originally from West Des Moines, Iowa. I attended Roanoke College in Salem, VA, graduating in December 2014. Cambodia will be my home for the next year as I participate in the Young Adults in Global Mission Program (YAGM) beginning in August.
I invite you to follow my journey in the Kingdom of Wonder. I would love to hear from you throughout my journey.
A note about financial support:
The cost to support a young adult in mission is about $11,000. ELCA Global Mission contributes $7,000 for each young adult’s year of mission service. However, I am responsible for raising a minimum of $4,000 toward my support package. This package provides transportation costs, housing, board or food allowance, a small stipend (“pocket money”), health insurance, language training, U.S. and in-country orientation, and a re-entry conference.
If you feel called to support my yagm year financially please see below. All donations are tax-deductible.
Checks should be made payable to the Evangelical Church with the designation “YAGM-Haley Toresdahl-GCS3158” in the memo line. Please send checks to the following address:
Evangelical Lutheran Church in America

Donation by credit card may be accepted by the ELCA Global Mission office at the toll free number 1-800-638-3522.
