For those of you that don’t know me, my name is Kate, I am a Registered Nurse and I am very passionate about mission trips! I’ve been to Dominican Republic with Army Of The Kind (AOTK) twice now and this year I’d love to go to Burkina Faso, Africa. Before going to DR the first time I was so excited and nervous because I didn’t know what to expect! I didn’t know anyone from AOTK but I took a leap of faith and my heart was changed forever. Everyone told me that I’ll make such a difference by just spending time with the kids, but in reality those kids changed ME. I cried for 3 days after coming home because I knew I’m coming back to a warm bed and food everyday of the week and the kids have to stay and eat 5 days a week, only if they’re sponsored. It makes me sad just thinking of that. My dream is to be a missionary nurse one day and help people in third world countries have access to healthcare. I want to go to Africa this year because I was heartbroken to find out that there are over 200 women each year who die from childbirth! Yes, childbirth. Something that seems so natural and yet they’re dying. Why? Well that’s why I want to go. I want to see with my own eyes why women are dying from CHILDBIRTH in 2018 and how I can help them, if not now then in the future. I am asking for donations because this trip is much more expensive than the previous ones. The flight alone is about $1500. I am asking you to take a leap of faith through me. I promise your money will go to good use. Your money will directly impact other peoples’ lives, and it’ll once again make me grateful for what I have, things that I often take for granted. AOTK goes to these places, like DR or Africa, to donate clothes, medicine, shoes but most of all introduce people to Christ. My dream is to be a part of that mission trip in October, 2018. I know with your help that dream can come true.
