"It was amazing to get to use my artistic gifts for God, who gave them to me in the first place! As an artist, I am always looking at the world around me for inspiration. The trip helped me to refocus and realize that God gave us this beautiful world and everything in it, and it is our job as artists to show others His beauty and love through our work."

- Rachel Smith (USA), Artist

"The outreach to Italy enabled me to rediscover creativity. I'm continuing to learn a lot about faith and the arts and hope I can develop this passion and instil more of it into my home church too."

"Something I really respect about ArtsLink is their high standard for art making. It's important to do your work well in whatever you are called to do. ArtsLink makes room for artists to do well in their practice while connecting to the Kingdom."

"This is an important experience for broadening your understanding of using your art to serve God... and to challenge your conceptions. ArtsLink gives a vision for how artists play an important role in ministry and a fresh approach to missions, both of which have been lacking."

- Eli Steenlage (USA), Videographer

"I've been on a couple of Artslink trips and after the first one, to North Africa, I had this new desire to return overseas and use art again as a way to spread Christ's love. I returned in the summer of '07 to Western Asia and God confirmed His call to live overseas, hopefully for two years at first and then longer after that. "

- Ashley Hilton (USA), Visual Artist, Graphic Designer & Dancer

"This experience has further confirmed that using the arts can easily cross language, age, religious, and cultural barriers in unique ways. Art does have the potential to divide, but I have seen it create peace which unites people; setting an example to non-believers that God's concern is for all and that He moves through love. "

"I’m glad the Lord opened up this chance to go and be part of a group of artists having the same vision yet not neglecting what the Lord has given to them…there is a whole world of arts out there that to me needs to be reclaimed back for the Kingdom. How are we going to do that, is a serious question. So as the Lord leads, I will keep my eyes and ears open to happenings in that direction."

- Maria Chua Song Cheng (Malaysia), Graphic Designer

"I feel so refreshed and excited about using my gifts for God's kingdom! It was one of the most satisfactory things I have ever done to work with a team of like minded people...I want to tell every artist about this experience! The chance to try new things and to reach people for Jesus through art was invigorating!
