First-hand accounts from JFA mentors and volunteers...
The Student Becomes the Trainer
In his first conversation of the day, Keawe Bridges built a bridge for a pro-life student who didn't know how to defend the unborn. Then, in another conversation with his pro-life friends and a pro-choice student, he was able to build a bridge for all of them at one time. This JFA Impact Report for November 2015, written by Joanna Wagner, includes both of these stories along with numbers that illustrate JFA's overall impact in 2015.
Reflection on the Justice For All Boulder Outreach - 2003
"This experience wasn't a highlight of my week, or even semester, but something I will treasure and remember for the rest of my life." When Ashley found herself in a small group of strangers at a Justice For All outreach event at the University of Colorado at Boulder in 2003, she found that the past she was ashamed of gave her a unique opportunity to share Christ's love with others and to experience Christ's love herself. Read about Ashley's amazing experience in her own words.

Miriam's Seminar Ends Up in the Abortion Clinic
A friend pulled Miriam out of bed one Saturday morning to take her to a pro-life training seminar JFA missionary Jon Wagner had arranged when he was a student at Azusa Pacific University.

From Mum to Mom
This Impact Report from 2012 shares the story of two young parents we met in Colorado, "Gloria" and "Josh," as they were considering whether or not to continue parenting...and whether or not to tell anyone. Now, they are happy to share the story of their "William" with anyone who will listen.

JFA’s Three Essential Skills Are the Life of the Party

Mission Trips - Catalysts for Change
Many Christians have found that family mission trips can be an effective way to immerse themselves in a learning environment. It doesn't take a trip out of the country to accomplish this, though! The Boyes family traveled from OK to TX for a three-day Justice For All mission trip. Read their story in this Impact Report from 2012.
Taking Paul to Heart
The apostle Paul encouraged Timothy to pass on to faithful souls what Paul had taught him. Like Paul, we want to impart our knowledge and wisdom to other capable leaders.
