CiaraCiara impacted life of single mother of 5 children while serving in Guatemala

“I connected with a single mother of 5 and was able to not only share a water filtering system with her, but share the One who gives us ‘living water.’ Thank you Above & Beyond for making this trip possible. While serving in Guatemala, I received a fresh idea of how our youth group can serve those in need at home.”  Ciara served 20 hours through her church’s bus ministry and at an outreach to people in a low income trailer community to earn her Above & Beyond rewards.

Jordan led Sabas to Jesus in HondurasJordan

After serving 33 hours locally, Jordan served on a construction project team in Honduras. Over several days,  she connected with Sabas.  One day, the Holy Spirit opened the door for her to share her faith journey with him, in Spanish. When she invited him to make a decision to follow Christ, he opened his heart to the Lord. Jordan shares “thanks Above & Beyond for making this opportunity a reality.  My life and Sabas’ was changed because of your support.”
