I will be volunteering with a non-profit organization known as GVI (Global Vision International) in Cape Town, South Africa, beginning September 7th, 2013. For a period of four weeks I will be working in an orphanage doing child care in addition to educational development. I will be spending my days loving on these abandoned and often abused children, while sharing with the story and love of Jesus Christ. The desire to serve others has been a large part of my life from a young age. Now having the opportunity to pursue these convictions in the name of our Lord, through answered prayer is the biggest blessing of all.
As mentioned before, I wanted to include you in on this unique opportunity. As you can imagine, the costs of going abroad to spread the incredible news of Jesus is far from cheap and I need your help. Any kind of help is greatly appreciated, in the form of donated clothes, books for children, advice, of course financial support/donations, encouraging words, and fund-raising opportunities. The most important contribution I ask of you is through prayer so this journey may be safe and lives will be transformed.
Thank you so much for your thoughts and support as I begin this new chapter of my life. I cannot wait to let you know how my trip was and share God's blessings. I pray one day I can be someone you come to for support!
