Hello Family and Friends, 

In February, I will be travelling with a group of adults and 30 college students to Casa de Fe in Shell, Ecuador. While there, we will serve at Casa de Fe, a "haven for abandoned and special needs children in the heart of the Amazon." 

Casa de Fe is focused on rescuing abandoned, abused and special needs children, providing for their physical, spiritual and eductional needs. While providing routine medical care, they also provide medicine, therapy and even surgeries. 

Casa de Fe also provides education to the children in a small classroom environment. The education goal is to enable students to pursue an advanced degree at a Spanish or English speaking institution.

The ultimate goal of Casa de Fe is helping each child achieve their highest potential! 


While on this mission, I look forward to caring for these children as well as learning about the college students I travel with. As I continue in seminary, I am drawn to college/young adult ministry. This mission provides an opportunty to learn more about perspectives young people have regarding church and faith. 


As a member of this team, I have been asked to raise $2000 in support, for travel and for the needs of Casa de Fe. I invite you, my family and friends, to join this mission through prayer and financial support. 

Would you consider a gift of $25?  Each donation, no matter the size, will maximize the potential of our team to do good work and help Casa de Fe help each child achieve their highest potential. 

I also ask for prayer for myself and our team! 
 
- for the community of Shell

- for the work of Casa de Fe today and every day

- that the needs of Casa de Fe would be met daily

- that our short term mission would have long term results for both the community and the team

- that our time there would be maximized to meet the needs of the children

- that our hearts would be broken for the needs of these children and children around the world

- that a lasting fire would burn in our hearts to care for those in need

- that our travel would go smoothly with few issues

- that our financial needs will be met

- and, personally, that God would continue to work in me as I discern my call to ministry.

Thank you and God Bless,

Thank you to all who supported the mission to Casa de Fe. In addition to the funds raised here, another donor covered the remaining amount needed.

I want to thank all who supported this mission to Ecuador, through prayer, support and financial gifts. A huge thanks to my mom and dad, and Jeff's parents for selflessly giving of their time by caring for our children while I completed this mission. To my husband Jeff, thanks for your heart and passion for Jesus and mission. I love you and the work God has done in your heart and life.

To the Ecuador team: thanks for an amazing 10 days. "I see a generation, rising up to take their place with selfless faith." You young men and women are world changers. As you complete college and embark on careers, do not let go of the passion to serve and love through mission. Hold fast to the Lord, his love and care so you can continue to share it with others...

Andrea, I so stand with you in reaching to the least of these! I know it is hard to ask but I also know none of us are wealthy so we need each other. Glad to be able to help out as I am able!
