I come from a HUGE family with many siblings, nieces and nephews and cousins. As the oldest sibling I grew up taking care of my family during our struggles of poverty. As I became an adult, I strived for children of my own and at times was bitter I had no children. I have learned that through missions I have hundreds of children that I can love and care for.
I attended my first mission trip in 2010. This trip changed my life and helped me understand my calling and love for children. Since then, I have attended countless missions over the years helping children of poverty and helping provide the basic needs to survive. Through these encounters I have seen that I have the power to make a difference in the lives of children who have been abandon from the world; so I am their voice. I also sponsor 2 children (Haiti and Dominican Republic).
The love and passion I have for missions cannot be explained in words. However, I can share that I know we (Army of the Kind) have made such an impact for children around the world. We have established nutrition centers, educational programs and supported orphanages to help change the world of poverty.
My first experience
A young boy who spoke a different language asked me for the shoes on my feet. I thought to myself "My shoes wont even fit him". I met with this young child and through translation shared a Godly experience with this young boy. When I gave him the shoes off my feet, he hugged me ever so tightly as tears fell from both our faces. It was then that I realized, this is what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. Over the years I have visited the same village and because of our organization and support this boy is now a teenager receives the nutrition and love he deserves.
What can you do
This year I pray to make it to Dominican Republic and Africa. This fund raiser will support these missions trips. I am completely out of my comfort zone asking for donations, however, I have learned that with GOD's plans NOTHING is impossible.
Any and all donations help me make my goal in continuing this journey I have been called upon. If you are not able to donate I totally understand and ask that you share this fundraiser with others.
Your donations help me help orphans around the world have a chance at a better tomorrow.
