Marisabel is a beloved community liaison and IMPACT’s Children’s Outreach Coordinator.
Mari conducts Vacation Bible School in every village that IMPACT serves, providing spiritual training to children who have had little or no exposure to the Bible. Life is hard in these villages, and children as young as four-years old spend much of their time gathering water, working in the fields, and babysitting. For these children, Vacation Bible School is a celebration akin to Christmas or a birthday party. IMPACT’s U.S. volunteers also pitch in, connecting with the village’s children on a heart level, and providing village men with a better model of fatherhood. Mari’s role in this work cannot be overstated.
