Adults on a mission to serve
Hall County residents cross borders, seas to share God's word
Rebekah Ryan of Gainesville has traveled to Guatemala three times for mission trips. In July, she visited an AIDS hospital and spent time with the children. She took photos of the children she met along the journey. Ryan, a 25-year-old North Hall High School graduate, is part of a growing trend of young adults spending time overseas, sharing the Scripture.
Rebekah Ryan stood outside a Guatemalan AIDS hospital with some trepidation in July. The Hall County native wasn’t afraid to admit what was on her mind. “Before I went, I was expecting to be afraid; I guess, because I’ve never been around people who have AIDS,” Ryan said.
