"Going on a mission trip has changed my life in ways I never could have imagined."

Ron

"A mission trip was, for me, a life-transforming experience"

Ami

"I cannot live without going on mission trips. I do not know why two, three missions trips a year are not enough for me to share the love of God with the people who need to hear this.

Elena

"In my experience, I can truthfully testify of far greater impact on my own life through missionary work than I can ever claim to have had in the lives of those I have served."
