Krista Jackson, 2013 A2S Volunteer
Upon our entrance, we were welcomed by hugs, smiles, handshakes, applause and warm greetings, all of which moved me to tears. As we stood in front of the congregation full of kids and volunteers, I became overwhelmed with emotions as everything I had been doing for A2S during the last 10 months became real in that moment — the children, the stories, the church. They were no longer distant images in my head; they were all right in front of me. I have never been so moved by anything, and I knew right then that this was not the end but only the beginning for me.
