What volunteers have to say…


  • I feel like I’m in exactly the right place. I am very thankful to God for this year and that I am able to serve him and be a light to the kids here. I have learned so much in the last months, have grown incredibly in my faith and have experienced how powerful the love of God is.
    – Janika, Paraguay 2016

  • Small but significant experiences and successes give me the sense that I am serving God right where I’m meant to be. I am able to learn so much here socially, spiritually and practically, I just need to decide to be willing to learn..
    – Hanna, Tanzania 2016

  • There are a lot of bad things in the world, but there are also so many people helping one another… I see this here every day!
