Hunter Smith was a friend of Arise and had gone on multiple mission trips to Zambia. He was loved by everyone with his infectious smile and great sense of humor. Hunter loved the Lord with all his heart and was always loving others around him. Hunter passed away in April 2016 at the age of 29.
With the help of the Smith Family and Kershaw’s Challenge, a scholarship was formed in Hunter’s memory. Each year an individual is chosen for the scholarship to go on a mission trip with Arise and experience the joy and love our Zambians have! We miss Hunter every single day, and are grateful for the continued blessing the scholarship offers to so many individuals
