“The Lord has used Impact ME to set my feet on solid ground, not only missionally, but also theologically.”- Ellie Jo Wedell, Class of 2014
“Being an intern at Impact Africa was the greatest decision I've ever made. Before I came here, I was loving and serving Jesus the best I knew how, but it still felt like I was living in black and white. Now, I finally feel like I'm seeing in color. Learning how to share my faith and embracing the Great Commission has made me come alive in a way I've never felt before.”- Sarah Miller, class of 2016
“We had an amazing 9 days with this first class ministry team! Thanks for all you are sowing in to South Africa!”- Rebecca Cobbledick
