Volunteering is a way of life for Amber, who went on short-term mission trips over a period of five years with GO Ministries.

Fun Facts:

  • To say that Amber enjoys traveling would be an understatement. She has visited 13 countries, four of them more than once, and plans to keep exploring. So far, Italy is her favorite.
  • She has the uncanny ability to talk like she’s full of helium without actually inhaling any.
  • Amber’s home town of Jacksonville, Illinois, may be small at only 25,000 residents but it has a unique distinction: Jacksonville is the home of the Eli Bridge Company that builds the Ferris Wheels seen at amusement parks and fairs across the nation.
