Team Testimonials:

“It energizes me to continue to advocate for the poor and the difference that can be made in a child’s life if we let ourselves be used by God.”

“I feel like I have to tell more people about the things I experienced so that their hearts will be broken and God will spur them to do something too.”

“[Because of this trip I now want] to honour God in everything I do — word, deed and thought. I want to please Him.”

“[This trip] has made me humble and wanting to do more of these projects.”

“[In the next 6 months] I will not worry about my back account and just be grateful that I even have one.”

“[This trip] was a great reminder of just how blessed we all are in Canada and thankful that we are able to be Christ’s hands and feet to those who have not.”

“[In the next 6 months] I will talk to people more about what we can do for people who have not, and why Christ compels me to do and go.”

“[This trip] has shown me that often, what we “need” is actually what we want.”
