MCML Podcast E84: Coach Ashley Launches Sports with a Mission
Ashley had always felt the tug on her heart for India. On her first trip, she remembers sitting at a dinner in the hotel, she looked at Kevin and asked, “What do you think about a sports mission trip? And he went, “Okay, tell me more.” That conversation later became a reality when Ashley returned to India with a team to teach kids volleyball at a school. For the first time ever in GHI, a sports mission team was formed.
