Earlier this year, Cassie Jones of Payson traveled to Ecuador with Simone Lake of Pine, a full-time minister serving as Bible teacher, international speaker, missionary and author.
Jones had traveled to Mexico several times with her youth group for short-term missions. “From the beginning, this mission trip was different than what I expected,” she said. “As each day passed, I learned more and my passion for missions increased. This experience has changed my life!”
Lake and Jones joined the Valley Rim Association of churches from Arizona to serve in Santo Domingo in various capacities.
