AVAI Was “On Fire for God”—He Changed My Life From the Inside Out 

by Ava Carroll

I gave my life to Christ in the summer of 2016 at a girls’ camp. I was “on fire for God.” God changed my life from the inside out. After I got saved, it felt like life changed. Not only did I have the desire to serve, but I also had the desire to learn.

I first started serving in my children's ministry. Soon after, I was introduced to the L.I.T. mission trip for our 5th and 6th graders.

My first mission trip made me realize the passion I had to serve. I genuinely feel happy when I can serve people, so I have looked for opportunities to serve continually. It helped me get into music ministry to serve, not only in our youth and children's ministry, but in other areas as well.
