My first mission trip!!!! Details

Friends, Family, Strangers,

My wanna be fearless, but very adventurous soul is taking off!! But this time, to fulfill my life-long (more like 6 year) dream of going to Africa!! Kisumu, Kenya.

God has moved in absolutely mind blowing ways to make this all happen, and I am ever so thankful for this opportunity!! Of course, it does cost just a bit to get me all the way over there. The total cost of the trip is $3,000. So i will be working and putting as much as i can towards the trip by myself, but from the words of my very own parents: “do your school!!!!!!”. So i would like to ask that if you have anything to give, you would prayerfully do so. If you can’t donate, then prayers are vital!!! This is a very big step in my life and will need all of the prayers i can get.

If you need a bit more convincing, here’s a few reasons why you should:

-i might get to see an elephant or a giraffe like… up close…. which would be AMAZING

-Me, running around africa, possibly barefoot, playing and sharing the gospel with wonderful, cute little kiddos. Amazing.

-i promise to take lots of photos so you can see that it was worth it

-it would just be so kind

But on a more serious note, God has been tugging on my heart lately. He’s given me a growing love and feeling of heartbreak for widows and orphans all over the world. I know there are diseases. I know i’m young. I know I “i have my whole life to go to africa.” I know all about culture shock. I know the risks. I’ve read about it all and i’ve prayed for hours on end that if this isn’t his will, he would remove the desire from my heart. I know that it might seem like i’m just another 16 year old girl who wants to go play with some cute kiddos on the other side of the world for some cute instagram photo. But i can promise you, this is where God wants me to go.

So, with all of that said, I’m trusting in the Lord completely and praying for an overwhelming amount of peace through this. I ask that you will pray with me over these next few months that the Lord will continue moving mountains and performing miracles.

Thank you all!!!!!!
