It's been one year since a bus carrying dozens of students from Mount Zion Baptist Church crashed. One person died and dozens more were injured.

They were on a mission trip to Botswana, Africa. The bus they were riding to the Atlanta airport crashed and flipped to its side. Sarah Harmening, 17, was killed.

Aidan Mills was on-board the bus when it crashed. She called Sarah everyone's inspiration and that they strive to have faith just like hers.

The past year has been about healing, but never forgetting.

To honor Sarah, the church decided to give back in the way they say she would. Saturday, June 9 was Serve Day at Mount Zion. They paired in teams for service projects across the Tennessee Valley.

"You think about the two greatest commandments: love The Lord Jesus Christ with all of your heart, soul, mind and strength and the second to love your neighbor as yourself. That's what Serve Day is all about," Dr. Kevin Moore, pastor of Mount Zion explained.
