Kelsey Beaton is a valuable addition to our staff. She had her life changed after a college fair at the mall. Someone talked with her about mission trips. After doing some research on the web and prayer, she came across Global Year. Graduating high school in 2011 she decided to take a year long mission to El Salvador. Upon her arrival home she attended some college, but kept feeling God’s call toward missions. She has a huge heart for young people and for serving the Lord! She is currently raising support and serving with Global Year.
