Please consider investing financially & sending me on mission to impact the lives of orphaned & impoverished children in Ethiopia.

Dear Friends and Family,

This last year I have read and studied several books about Africa and the spiritual and physical needs that are there. God has literally opened my eyes and broken my heart for the children of Africa and all the horrible things they are forced to go through. I am "jumping with joy" to announce that I have recently been given the opportunity to take my first mission trip to this continent. And so this coming March, I will be traveling to Addis Adaba, Ethiopia for seven days. I will be going with a group of adults and students from St. Joseph Christian School and from Brookdale Church.

Our mission will be to work with two schools, Kind Hearts and Trees of Glory, as well as assist with various other projects such as the Addis Street Ministry and Street/soccer ministry. We also plan to help the schools by building a chicken coup, which will help the community members with eggs, food and nourishment.

I am so excited to be a part of these mission projects but most of all I am looking forward to seeing with my own eyes the need that I have been reading about. I can't wait to sharing the love of Christ as I get to interact with orphans and homeless children on the streets of Addis. I also look forward to what God may want to do in and through me in Africa both on this trip and in the future.

In order to go on this trip, I will need to raise $2400. If you would like to be a part of this trip by helping me to go financially you can give immediately (by credit card) here on this website or if you feel more comfortable writing a check to the cause you can make your donations out to Brookdale Church. In the MEMO area, write Ethiopia and please put my name on the front of the envelope, otherwise your donation won’t get credited to my account. You can mail/deliver your donation to:
4703 North Lakewood Drive
St. Joseph, MO 64506

Thank you for praying for and supporting me in this mission! Together we will impact lives for all eternity!
