Team Testimonials:

“[In the next 6 months] I will be more open to others and how they act and their opinions; More patient with people; Find ways I can help others.”
“[This trip] has made me more aware of the importance of community. Within the Church, this is based on Christ's love for us.”
“Before [this trip] I never really knew or realized the power and passion of prayer. The people of the church… prayed with such fervor and desperation. It has changed the quantity, quality and content of my prayers dramatically.”
“[In the next 6 months I will] try to love people no matter who they are or what their circumstances.”
“[In the next 6 months] I am going to take stock of how I am living and spend time and money in a more God-honouring way.”
“[This trip] is causing me to reflect on priorities as a Christian and the concept of the Good Samaritan.”
