Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- Service has been a way of life for one Duluth couple for many years and when they got the chance to expand their service beyond their community, and help on an international level, they embraced it.

With the help of their New Life Church, Ron and Lorraine Simpson recently wrapped up a mission trip to Madagascar.

The Simpsons visited three schools and two prisons on their trip.

The Friends of Madagascar Mission helped supply food for the women prisoners.

The Simpsons, with the help of their church, also gave the prison ministry two guitars and a drum.

They say the trip opened their eyes and they would go back in a heartbeat.
"It's not what our church is going send us over to do, it's what do they need us to help them with," Ron Simpson said.
