National WMU has named four mission-minded teens with outstanding character and credentials to serve as missions influencers on the 2016 National Acteens Panel.
They are Sarah Golden of Eastern Hills Baptist Church in Pike Road, Ala.; Hannah Hutton of Hyde Park Baptist Church in Austin, Texas; Jemima Louis of Tallowood Baptist Church in Houston, Texas; and Ana Sandoval of Freeman Heights Baptist Church in Garland, Texas.
Acteens is WMU’s missions organization for girls in grades 7-12 to help them grow in their relationships with God and their peers. Together they live a missional lifestyle, develop leadership skills and become actively involved in ministry.
“Of all the things we learn, Acteens most importantly develop an ability to love,” said Louis. “The organization develops a love for serving, a love for others and a love for God.”
All four panelists have been involved with Acteens for six years and have demonstrated a commitment to service through the local church.
Hutton claims that being an Acteens member has helped her share the gospel within her sphere of influence.
