AYC, for me, was the single most life changing trip of my life. It was life changing to see 33 Maasai tribe members receive the Holy Ghost, you could see the sweet Holy Spirit all over them. AYC gave me the opportunity to explore my love for missions, and even further my life in missions. I had the feeling I was called to global missions, my AYC trip completely confirmed that for me.
