    What is special about Trinity: Trinity is my family away from home. While moving to Iowa by myself was scary, the people at Trinity made the move so easy for me. They were all willing to help and make me feel at home right away. I loved knowing that so many people were praying for me as I considered and accepted the Call to teach at Trinity and as I moved to Iowa. The way everyone supports each other is what makes Trinity unique to me.
