Team Testimonials:

One thing I am going to change in the next six months is, "I am going to take things more seriously and have the confidence to share my faith like I did with the people of Haiti."
"God has really changed my heart on this trip by giving me the understanding of what He is calling me to do. God has changed my heart to be a missionary."
"I have been changed by everything. Everyone needs to go and see poverty for themselves."
One highlight I experienced on this trip was, "helping build a home for a family and getting to see it almost finished with a roof and knowing they could move out of their tent."
