CIY’s Kingdom Worker Crash is an opportunity for high school students to share how God has placed a desire on their heart and use them to make a difference in their communities.

Here is Dara Cates' story.



Dara Cates accepted a Kingdom worker challenge at CIY MOVE. The challenge card said to adopt an elderly person to perform yardwork, but Dara knew the Lord would take her project to the next level with Kathleen. This elderly lady was lonely, and Dara started visiting her multiples times a week – including communion on Sunday. These visits blossomed a friendship Dara didn’t expect, and she loved to learn about Kathleen’s life. Dara shared it was heartbreaking to witness Kathleen’s life come to an end, but she knew her friend wasn’t suffering anymore and was with Jesus. Dara said Kingdom work is all about saying “Yes” because that’s when the world changes.
