It was a delightful, sunny Saturday morning as over 300 women from all across Minnesota came to worship, fellowship, hear from guest speakers, and invest into the ministry of Project Life.

We had the privilege of being lead in worship by Dawna Johnson, Recording Artist, and hearing a powerful message by Minnesota missionary to Costa Rica, April Amiot.

April Amiot and her family have been Assemblies of God missionaries for the past 13 years, working with university students in both Mexico and Costa Rica.

She and her husband, Josh, were two of the founding missionaries of Red Universitaria—an international university ministry to reach students throughout Latin America.

In addition to teaching art classes, preparing large meals, and hosting leaders’ meetings, April is known on many university campuses for her iced coffee, which rivals any coffee shop.

She is a teacher by profession and is currently homeschool teaching their two daughters, Emma and Lucy, while their son, Taylor, is attending North Central University in Minneapolis.
