"Volunteering with FFR was really a life changing experience in many ways and showed me how God can impact lives by simply meeting people. Being at The Agape Center was the best experience I’ve ever had in my entire life. The kids are seriously the sweetest and most loving kids I’ve ever met and I’m really thankful I got to help as best I could. I was able to see their village and the very poor living conditions. The fact that the kids still seem to smile everyday and worship and love God is truly amazing. I am definitely going to come back and volunteer again!"

~ Ariana C, volunteer from North Carolina, USA
