“I have been learning so much about God’s heart for His people all around the world and how there is such an urgency to share the Gospel with these people who don’t know.”- Sarah Tapp, Class of 2012
“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
“This was my first mission trip and it literally transformed me and changed my life! I love what Impact Africa is doing for the people of Africa! Before this trip I hadn't ever had a passion for missions or an understanding of how important missions really is! Now I want to live my life for the Gospel! Thank you Impact Africa for impacting me!”- Cassi Mhoon
