Memorial Walk Honors Slain Student Missionary
Story by Mary Liles
One year after Kirsten Wolcott was slain while serving as a missionary on the Micronesian island of Yap, the Tappahannock Junior Academy (TJA) in Tappahannock, Va., held a memorial walkathon in her honor. Wolcott, who formerly attended TJA, was on leave from Southern Adventist University (Tenn.) serving as a student missionary when she died.
More than 200 people participated in the Kirsten Wolcott Memorial Walk. The walkathon raised $10,000 to support mission efforts at TJA. Local businesses also donated to support the missions cause. One walker noted that though she is no longer with us, her missionary spirit lives on.
Rainy Park, a Southern Adventist University student, wrote the book Love Kirsten, which details Wolcott’s brief stint as a missionary. Park attended the memorial walk, as did the ambassador from Yap along with some of his family and friends.
