My name is Theresa Allen, I am a native of St. Louis Missouri, I now reside in Joplin Missouri. Several years ago I met an extraordinary woman Melanie Keeling who shared with me her passion to help the children of Haiti after their devastating earthquake of 2010. Her faithful commitment and determination to help Haiti's children made an significant impact on me. So much in fact that I knew in my soul that I had to do something to make a change in the lives of those children as well.
I am the artist and illustrator of an amazing book-"Letters From God". "Letters From God" gives an cohesive account of God's Word through-alphabet, word usage, rhyme, and illustrations.
When I first met Melanie Keeling I had just finished creating the illustrations for my book, all 26 letters of the alphabet! And God put it on my heart to send prints of those letters to Haiti! I asked Melanie if she could take them on one of her trips to Haiti, she agreed! This is how I first learned of Imagine Missions. Imagine Missions is a home, school and church, for orphans; as well as children who can't be adequately cared for by their family-do to the effects of Haiti's 2010 earthquake.
Several years later my book "Letters From God" was published! Once again God put it on my heart to help the children of Imagine Missions. My goal is to make an impact the lives of children all over the world that God brings my way! To promote literacy not only through scholastic education but most importantly I want to spread literacy through the teachings of the Letter of the Living Word of God! I believe that we must teach children not only how to read but we must teach them to know and to understand that God has a perfect plan and has made a perfect way for their lives through Jesus Christ! For through Him there is liberation from any obstacle in their lives, because Christ dwells in them! That is what I pray that the children of Imagine Missions will receive when they receive their very own book of "Letters From God"! I pray that this learning tool will encourage them to grow in God's word!
There are a 110 students in attendance at Imagine Missions! our goal is to get a book into the hands of every child. To manifest this dream for the children of Imagine Missions a fundraiser is in motion. Our goal is to raise $4550.00. This amount will cover the cost of the books as well as a missions trip to Haiti on April 12th-19th 2014-to personally deliver "Letters From God"!
With the help of God and your generous support we can make this a reality! EVERY BIT COUNTS!
Help spread literacy of the Living Letter of God all over the world! Our first stop is Haiti!
