In 2014, Allison led an intern team back to Narok, Kenya and felt her call to missions grow even stronger.
Allison is serving alongside the Prosperous Youth Foundation team in Chiang Mai, Thailand, using her passion for education development. She will be teaching English and tutoring in the youth homes, which are where youth come to stay who have moved into the city to further their education. She will also be training other youth workers to teach, while developing curriculum for the youth homes in Chiang Mai. These activities are done in hopes of fostering relationships that will give her the opportunity to share her faith and engage in discipleship.
