It's May and our Summer Season is quickly turning to Winter. The warmth is fading but our ministry temps remain high and red hot! It is with much gratitude and joy we report the amazing stories, stats, miracles, testimonies and activities that have ALREADY taken place this year! Read and hear what you’ve been a part of or can be a part of in 2017.....

The year started off with a bang and has remained at a high pace. Through face-to-face conversations, school assembly programs, Impact Baby Rescue presentations, and children’s programs, we’ve already been in front of more than 9,200 sharing the Hope found in Jesus Christ! Of those 9,200, more than 2,600 people made a decision to follow Christ! That’s over 2,600 people who are now in relationship with the Father, brought from darkness into the light.
Do miracles still happen? We sure believe they do; 11 people whom we prayed for, were physically healed in the moment...and it is only a quarter of the way through the year! Join us in celebrating the lives changed and the momentum that will only increase as the year goes on!
IBR Highlight
Our Impact Baby Rescue team has been busier than ever with the work of prevention and rescue. In March, we were in front of a record number of people with our awareness campaign and going house-to-house to share about IBR and the Gospel. Throughout the month, we were in front of 926 people sharing the hope we’ve found in Jesus as well as information about our Center and how we can help women in crisis. We were able to see the fruit of our labor, as we had 4 baby cases in the month of March alone! That’s more than any other month in the history of IBR! We are so thankful to our Father God, who reached down and intervened in these precious babies’ lives, and grateful that He chose to use us to do it!
Internship Highlight
Our Impact ME Internship Program 2017 Class is our biggest yet! 20 young people have relocated to Africa for a season of discovering the calling of Jesus, experiencing a life on mission, and advancing the Kingdom of God through classes and hands-on application. A recently graduated intern told us, “Being with Impact Africa has prepared me to share the Gospel not just as a part of a program, but as a part of my lifestyle.” This is what Impact ME is all about – making missions a condition of the heart, rather than an activity on the field in Africa. Please pray for the interns to continue having a GREAT impact here in Africa and to continue growing in the Lord!
Story from Ministry
We’ve been walking with Angie, a student, for over a year as we visited her high school to teach the students on topics like alcohol, drugs, life choices, and most importantly, the Gospel. Angie, a vibrant student full of life, has been very involved with Impact Students – participating in class, in afterschool Bible exposure programs, and in various retreats. Recently, she opened up to one of our team members and read her two different poems she had written – one written before connecting with Impact Students, and one written after. The first poem described Angie as just an ordinary girl, broken by the world. In stark contrast, the second poem described how she had come to see herself since then – as a daughter of the King. It has been amazing to see the transformation in her as she’s discovered who she is in Christ!
