Join with Me To Make a Difference
I believe that as we bring together our individual strengths, talents and passions, we will change the world. I don't say that lightly, as I realize it sounds... well, just a little bit idealistic. And yet I've seen it! I've been privileged to travel all over the world, to see the amazing work people of purpose are accomplishing. None of them could do it alone. And yet when passionate people come together to support a well-planned project with their finances, voices and volunteer hours, miracles do happen. I've seen wells gushing forth clean water where there was none, little girls rescued from the brothels that tortured and sold them daily, starving people being able to grow food and orphans experiencing love for the first time in their life. It's all possible, but it won't happen without your unique contribution to this world.
Be Their Voice
This little girl in a notorious village in Cambodia is at risk of being trafficked.
I loved the statement of faith these Ugandans had carved into the door of their modest hut. They belonged to a village who had just received a well a few days ago. Prior to this, they had to hike more than 10 km in the blazing sun to carry water back that was muddied by animals and waste - water that would often poison them. Yet their faith remained.
These beautiful kids were lined up for a feeding program in Turkana, Kenya. That one meal is often the only food they will have in a day.
This Ukrainian orphan so looks forward to seminary students who visit these state-run institutions every Saturday to pour out love on these kids - many not even technically orphaned, but abandoned by parents who are experiencing addiction or extreme poverty.
