Christa Saenz helps coordinate PRISM's weekly events and activities. You can find Christa each week at Open House, Bible Studies and many other weekly activities. She has recently rediscovered her love for good books, good coffee and having recently gotten married, is enjoying learning how to be a good wife. She got to see a good portion of the United States when she traveled in a motor home with her family for five weeks when she was nine. Since then she has traveled to Honduras, Ghana and Uruguay. Ask Christa about her six week adventure through Europe!

David Zamora is part of the Colombian invasion to Pittsburgh (he arrived at the city in 2015, with Yina, his wife). You will see him in different PRISM activities, either wandering about with a yellow camera and a tripod or helping to move heavy stuff. David also supports Spanish Bible studies, English conversation groups, and M28 groups. He enjoys various types of narratives (e.g. short tales, classic novels, films, and comics). Ask him about his year in Wales, that time when he was offered to eat monkey and armadillo in the Amazon, and his favorite soccer team!
